That measuring tape always goes missing when I need it  ::). Just managed to find it.

The diameter is 18 mm.

Overlord,
If memory serves me right, my coin is smaller. Will revert tomorrow.

If my memory don't fail, this coin was subject to an earlier discussion

I have a similar coin which I have always believed to be Kishangarh because of the "quartered square" on the other side. . But the shape of the Jhar is slightly dfferent at the top (circle). Perhaps knowledgable members might want to comment. BTW, the ticket said Jaipur-Half  Anna.
