An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Sorry Peter, I do not find this type listed anywhere under Kali fanams. What's the mass, BTW?

Sorry, Overlord. Intended to mention that and forgot. It is 0.5 gram and 6.6 mm.

The spot of light may be in the way. I made six scans and this is the most acceptable.

My id is Tuticorin KM 48, Scholten 1257, Kali with club right.

Nope, I still can't find an exact match. All Kali fanams reported in Herrli's book are in the 0.33-0.37 g range though.
