I don't know much about these coins (but I do know the damris are even harder to find), but I can appreciate a nice, centrally struck coin with fine patina when I see one. TFP.

Thanks Peter! The damri is a 1/8 dam (Dam weighing 21gms approx)and due to lesser survival of small fractions, these are scarce to find. Morever, when found these are mostly in a bad condition. So these coins are very hard to find!
