Vic, the second coin of yours is the one with the Palm in Box type with the states name Lu - Na - Va - Da written around it. The Right image shows the rulers name Ma - Va - Si with the dual date 42:86 above it. 42 is 1942 AD and 86 is VS 1986.

The Third coin posted by Dr N Sreedhar is a similar coin as your second one with the Lion type over struck on it. It is a nice one with both strikes clearly seen.

Thank you for your detailed description Amit, here is one of mine with a Tiger, there are lots of fakes of this type and this could possibly be one as it's not one of my coins collected decades ago

........ here is one of mine with a Tiger,
Not a Tifer, Vic. It is a Lion.

........ , there are lots of fakes of this type and this could possibly be one as it's not one of my coins collected decades ago
I agree that fakes flooded the market some time back but this one does not look fake.
