Dear Sayan,

Just make sure that the size of the individual image is less than 128KB. Try cropping the image to remove the unnecessary portion.

Yes. I do buy coin from Ebay, particularly Gwalior Princely states. Sometimes, you do get some rare and unknown coins on Ebay.

For example, I got this coin and this coin  from Ebay at a very reasonable rate.

Your coin looks Good to me. If it has been given to you by your Grandma, chances are there that it should be a genuine coin.

Seems Ok to me.  But, I have been out of the BI coinage scene for a while now.  So, I don't know if any new type of fabrications have manifested through the years...

I have purchased some coins from Manmai. In my opinion, she sells good stuff. All the coins seems original to me.
