Again some beautiful coins, Mitresh.

The coins you show cover all of India's history. That is already a big collecting area, especially if you only buy top coins. Adding mints will multiply the number of holes to fill. If you are also looking at the year, I think you likely double the number of candidates for your collection and if you count the month, won't you get into a situation where your collection is dominated by Mughal coins, many not much different from each other? How did you solve that?

Yes bang on Peter. Thats a conundrum I face and I do have quite a few duplicates but whenever I see a sublime specimen, I seem to give in to my craving. Not the ideal way to collect but then this is the only hobby where if one goes bankrupt, he still has some money  >:D
