1/4 rupee is not a Mehmudi.

A Mehmudi was a 5-6 g coin in circulation in Western India and was an accounting standard along with the Dam.

Yesteday I won the coin in auction payment made... One week at least to come in real conclusion. Weight is the only way to detect. Thanks Amit. Reply me on next post.

This is a half Mehmudi. A nice coin and difficult to find. The peacock feather is the mint mark of Baglana.
