I find it very interesting when the complete inscription is included in the graphic.  Thanks!  I may never be totally comfortable with them but this is helpful!

The catalog number is GG-D475.

Tariq - I really enjoy the 'illuminated' coins.  How do you produce them?

Thank you for the number.

From the book "Valentine - Copper coins of India" i know the inscription. With the knowledge of language its not hard to reconstruct using "Paint".
