Quote from: Rangnath on August 08, 2007, 06:39:19 PMKm 53, the one Kori was minted during the reign of Raja Shri Desalji, 1818 to 1830. The date is off the flan. The Nagari letters read Raja Shri D. Sounds like a rapper's name. The coin is beautifully round and well struck.Question for Aidan:Was Kutch a registered Feudal state of the British at the time of minting?richie
Quote from: Rangnath on August 10, 2007, 04:06:06 PMThanks Aidan. I noted the information you and Peter gave me about the coin on its holder. You mentioned that Nawanagar also used "Kori" as a denomination. Just yesterday, I was able to id a worn hammered coin as a variation of Km 2 of Nawanagar: 1 Dokdo. Nawanagar came under British protection in 1812. But the date of the coin can only be placed as between 1570 and 1850! What to do?richie
