A little update on the legend.
Reverse, the second line will be / Deva Sri Gaurina /.

Question.
These are three different coins with the same weight?

I'd say the first two are the same, and the third is a different one (some details don't match, and the borders seem to have been handcutted).

Both them look great, don't know about their scarceness but i agree that they're really fine.

I agree.
This type is not in short supply, at auctions you can buy for 20-30 dollars.
