This is the plate specimen coin from Robinson M., The lead and tin coins of Pegu and Tenasserim

Obv: Cock to left within circle, beads from mouth
Rev: 2 clouds and what appears to be stylized Tibetan characters, perhaps imitating a late 18th or early 19th century Sino-Tibetan sho

You never cease to discover things when you are interested in coins. Are these really coins or tokens?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
