Satavahanas - Elephant/Tree in railing type -various units
« on: September 12, 2019, 02:15:00 PM »
These were added to collection as a set recently.  Though neither rare nor in a great state condition-wise it was fascinating to see the range of weights.  I could see the four proved Ukraine symbol on a couple of coins too.

Can not add any information. But your post anfd photos nicely illustrate that it is difficult to collect ancient Indian coinage on a "one per type" basis. There may be so much difference between specimen so that you need several to get an impression of the sheer variety.
