Very interesting counterstamp, sarwar khan. Can you explain to those who do not have a facebook account what the purpose of the counterstamp was?

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

Some princely states or local landlords which are not able to issue their  own coins therefore such states should counter stamped on a  worn coin of the different states to fullfill or balance their monetary systement of state, counter stamped coins are widely popular in the gulf of cambay and the malwa area
