Glad you have a catalogue reference. I would have gone wild searching for this coin among Malaysian states coins :)

For the as yet uninitiated, MACW stands for Michael Mitchiner's book Oriental Coins and their Values: The Ancient and Classical World. A VERY expensive reference.

My copy of MACW has had so much use that it wouldn't be worth any thing like that unfortunately :o

Yeah, that is actually on the high end of the scale.  Still, it is not a cheap book.  Steve Album just recently auctioned off a copy of the book and it went over $600!  It is one of the best books out there, even though some of the attributions are dated.  The Mitchiner numbers are still widely used...
