Thanks for showing. Had not heard about a fresh Bangladesh hoard with these. Wonder why these were stacked away by someone, as history tells us these were very much disliked by the people ?

Very informative post sir...especially the reading of the legends on the margin which almost always irritates beginners like me..

Dear Vic,

I am not sure how big the hoard was but I guess it was about 200 pcs if not more. Most of the coins were in very bad condition as those were heavily corroded when discovered. Because of bad condition mints on many coins were not legible. Among the legible mints most are from Lakhnauti and a good numbers are from Sonargaon while only a few are from Satgaon. I managed to collect 17 pcs that have full or partial mint.

Rgds,
