Portuguese India Dump coins ( Rupia,Xerafim,Pardao .. )
« on: November 17, 2013, 03:49:22 PM »
Dear Friends,
recently I happen to see some good Portuguese India - rupia and other silver coins in web marketplace like ebay, but they are far high price in dollar terms compared to other milled coins post 1881 .
Is there any specific reasons why they can be expensive range , it that because of lesser prints/ or older dates ? I am unable to get into number of coins minted on Krause catalog.

I am relatively newbee  :) to this forum and so far collected coins of lower value, any advice as I venture into this front of expensive coin collect ??? ?

Many Thanks

Welcome to the forum udai, be very wary of what you buy as a lot of Portuguese India coins are being faked- particularly rupias, if in doubt post a web link for others on this forum to take a look
