Indian I think
« on: June 09, 2019, 03:28:45 AM »
I'm hoping I've not already posted this.  2mm and 6 gram.  Copper I think.  Still researching. I think the revers should be 180.  Is that a tiger?

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

Dear gpimper, according to the weight of your coin, it is 5 Para copper and not 10 Para. The denomination is below the tughra but it is not clear, it should read  " P5 پ۵ ". Please see this Numista link:
5 Para - Mahmud II - Egypt ? Numista
