East India Company, Bengal Presidency, Copper 1 Pice, 5.84g, 22mm, INO Shah Alam II, Sagar Mint, KM 72



East India Company, Bengal Presidency, Copper 1 Pice, 5.29g, 21mm, INO Shah Alam II, Sagar Mint, KM A65



At first look, both coins look the same however there is a subtle difference. Coin 1 (KM 72) has a 6-petalled rosette as mint mark while Coin 2 (KM A65) has a 6-pointed star as mint mark. Note the smooth rounded vs sharp pointed edges of both mint marks and you will spot the difference.
