Lovely coin with nicely done overlay. The ruler is missing in my small collection.

Thanks a lot for sharing.

An extremely rare coin!
Deep strike with mild corrosion at the bottom. Appears to have been carefully cleaned by an expert  ;D

TFS, Saikat. This will be an important addition to your overlay index.

I hear the expert does pretty good overlays also. ;)
