Farrukhsiyar. Rupee. Mint: Khambayat. AH 1130 RY 7
« on: August 01, 2017, 02:52:36 PM »
I thought this one should be easy to find. However, I find not many posted on WoC nor is this date represented on ZENO.

A rupee of Khambayat, issued during the reign of Farrukhsiyar in the year 1130 RY 7. Wt: 10.26 g and size: 24.04 mm. (Need to look at this in depth since the weight is too low for my liking).

I have few questions in mind :-

What would lowest weight acceptable from numismatic
point of view.
Does International auctions house set the criteria for offering lower weights coins or at what weight they consign in auctions.

From picture coin seems to be of broad flan still lower weight quite surprising.

Cheers ;D
Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

There is a possibility of a typographical error of 10 instead of 11. Need to wait till I have the coin in hand (which would be by mid next week) to weigh it.
