An excellent specimen. So much of the border is visible that I am tempted to ask if it's a broad flan rupee. asm will be delighted to see it. ;) The separators come at well with the shadows, giving the picture awesome depth.

The understatement of the year. Amit's photography skills make the coin come alive.

Just to clarify: this paricular photograph was taken by the last owner/seller. I donít make fresh photos where the auction/seller photos are good enough (and likely shot using equipment much better than mine).
