Hello everyone.

Sharing picture of two Copper Pice. The Smaller one (in size 22.5mm / 5.90gm) is one that I inherited and the other (26.6mm / 6.39gm) I acquired.

Requesting guidance on this size and weight variance of same issue.




Yes, British India, pice of Bengal Presidency, Calcutta mint. Checking a Krause catalog, and going by the photos plus reported weights and diameters, it looks like the larger one is KM#56 (nominally 26 mm, weight not stated in my catalog) and the smaller is KM#57 (nominally 6.13 g and 23 mm), keeping in mind that there was some variability.
