Here is a coin/token I obtianed in a huge world coin lot. Anyone have any ideas about it. Cant find it in catalog.

its dated 181, East India Company 1/2 Anna. It weighs 12.6 Grams copper or bronze. Same size as a U.S. Kenndy Half.

Modern tourist souvenir. Fun to collect, but not old.

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