Quote from: dheer on August 23, 2015, 05:25:47 PMCould you clarify the theme a bit more ... is it unusual mint marks?, i.e. rarely used ones ... or mint marks that more like blend into the design, or mint mark at unusual places?"symbol just above the "R" of "YEAR" ... this one is there on quite a few Indian coins as well ... in its usual position.

Quote from: Pabitra on August 24, 2015, 03:55:16 AMI remember that nearly 8 to 10 years ago, a dealer offered me a circulating commemorative coin of India at nearly 10 times the normal price, saying that the mint mark used on the coin was supposed to be meant for proof sets only. It was then that I came to know that many times , mints have separate mint marks for general coins and proof coins. If some one is interested, I could look in to my records and attempt to locate it.
Quote from: Pabitra on August 24, 2015, 06:53:09 AMHow many of about 60 mints which strike proof sets, have a distinctive mint mark for proof sets?
Quote from: Bimat on August 24, 2015, 07:27:19 AMHyderabad issues only single coins in proof (and probably Noida too) but again, no distinctive mint mark.
Quote from: Bimat on August 24, 2015, 05:38:03 AMDoesn't Mumbai mint still use different mint mark for proof coins ('M') and unc coins (A diamond above date)? Or has this practice been stopped now?
