Mewar Feudatory. Bhinder (referred in SAC as Bhinda). Paisa.
« on: February 06, 2014, 11:49:32 AM »
A Paisa of Bhinder, a feudatory of the Mewar State. The place has been referred to in various texts as Bhinda but the actual name is Bhinder.

I was just looking through the original SAC and saw the photo of a coin of Bhinda( no photo in the Indian edition)  it triggered a thought that I had something similar on my unidentified trays.
The peculiarity of the way that Shah is engraved at an angle is the only real similarity and I wonder if it could be Bhinder or just a Kachcha?  10g

Bhinder was apparently a small 'Thikana' of Mewar and is today a small village located a few kilometers from the Udaipur airport. It is quite possible that the Thakedar / headsman was permitted to mint copper to maintain a small contingent which may have been outsourced to him - to be provided to the rulers in time of need.
