Maratha Confederacy. Rupee. Mint: Garha Mandla, M&W T2
« on: October 28, 2018, 06:43:12 PM »
Below is a Maratha Confederacy Rupee coin from Balanagar Gadha(Mandla) mint with RY#35. On obverse the there is Type 2 Trishul (trident)
For this combination the Krause catalog lists KM#288 as shown in the link below
https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/world/india-independent-kingdoms-maratha-confederacy-rupee-km-288-30-1207-33-cuid-1155948-duid-1489583

But the obverse of the coin depicted in KM# does not match with that on my coin. I do not have the Maheshwari & Wiggins' book to look into.
Can someone please help with correct attribution for this coin. Thanks in advance.

While the right picture looks quite similar, the left is indeed different.

Yeah. I only have Krause catalog and so far online search have not yield any results.
Hoping that someone with different catalog/resource could shed more light on it.

Your coin seems to be type T2 as per page 106 on "Maratha Mints and Coinage" by Maheshwari/Wiggins. This is from Garha Mandla Mint.

The image is reproduced below.
