Counter Stamped Ratlam Paisa's.
« on: July 27, 2013, 02:18:46 PM »
I posted these on FB and got confirmation of these meing issues of Ratlam with the Raij mark. The Rulers name is fairly clear: Shah Alam so SA II. The countermark is the same on both coins and in one case, it is stamped on both sides. Vic has read the mark as Adl (Justice). So why and where were these coins counter marked or stamped?

Shailen Bhandare reads thes as dates. Not very clear on the first second one and 1208 on the second first one. According to him, these were to re-validate the coins so that the coins would not be discounted by the Shroffs while making payment.

The bottom right coin is the one I thought read as Adl but I think the others are definitely different so presumably dates as indeed is probably the one i think is Adl  :o
