Pipala Deva?

Hi Friends! I recently picked up this coin for very cheap. I think it is Pipala Deva (Tye 47) but I want to be sure. Thanks.

I saw this coin being discussed by Anthony here:

Assuming this is Pipala, I believe it is somewhat scarce. I must be lucky indeed as I got it for just a 100 rupees.
The seller must have taken it for some some random b&h coin and not given it a second look.

Wow, great find, good eye to be able to get this cheaply. These are not merely scarce, but quite rare.
It also has a great bonus in that such a large part of the name is visible. Congratulations and thanks for showing !

Thanks Anthony. Sometimes, careless sellers can be a great boon for us collectors. I wouldn't have imagined a rare coin like this to sell for just a hundred rupees.
