thank you so much...  I will post all other information about this coin, once I get it in the mail...  you wrote that it is a 40 para coin... however the seller says it's a 20 para... I will measure it and weight it and will add the picture of the reverse for everybody to see and have a full description for reference...  I will also include the KM # as I found similar ones in the Krause catalog... Thank you aws22, once again... =)

The denomination is on the other side - see 40 and 20 para below.

Thank you mti & FosseWay. The same data applies to 20 Para, I will correct my post accordingly.

Just received the coin in the mail... and yes it is a Counter Stamp on a 20 Para coin...
It is 21 mm in diameter and attached is the photo of the reverse of it... not really much to see there...
