Recently, I was lucky enough to get a new coin for my collection. I guess that's 1/4 anna 1887/6 Bombay overdate - what do you think? Is there a reference to this coin in any of the catalogs?




I think you are right to say it's an overdate, but I am not completely convinced that the underlying figure is a 6. Other candidates are 5 and 3.

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

Nice find. I don't think most of the reference books go into details about overdates (not that I have seen anyway).

I don't have any 1887 quarter annas to check against myself either.
