Thanks Bob appreciated ....
I was delighted to add this very rare variant to the set. I've been upgrading coins lately, as I'm at the point where any 'NEW' ruler or variant are few and far between and invariably expensive. So when this one popped up I grabbed it quickly...
The website I've been working on for a few years now is close to completion and will post a link for those who might be interested...

Do need some help on a couple of issues though....

Apparently Kenneth West wrote an article on this series but I cant find it anywhere?..Anyone have this or know how to download it?

Also both these new coins are from the ex-William Spengler collection...Is there a site to view this collection?

Any help on the above points would be most appreciated.....Thanks Paul

Knowing nothing at all about these coins, I found the thread fascinating. You have some lovely coins, Paul, and the photographs and write-ups are most interesting. A lot of work has been done in bringing it all together, and highlighting the details and giving the explanations of the legends makes the thread a very polished reference.

It has taken me while to work my way through, but I have learned a lot. Thank you for the time and effort.

Jim

Thanks Jim, the feedback is much appreciated and I'm really glad you enjoyed the thread.

When I look back at my initial posts I realise just how much I've learnt about this series over the last 4 years.....Still a big passion/obsession of mine

Thought I'd share a recent addition to my Hindu Kashmir collection.....For me an 'interesting piece'!...
The coin is of Sussala Deva....There are two legend variations referenced, one with 'Sri' the other without, of which I owned both types before this recent acquisition so why did I buy it?...
Well the diagram below shows the two types with breakdown of legend...Note also the trident is held in the left hand..


This new purchase shows the 'Sri' type but as you can see the trident is now being held in the right hand?...
This got me searching and the 4 main reference books show this.....
Cunningham..Only one example 'Plate coin#26' (although he does recognise the 2 types).....Legend without Sri, trident is held in 'Left hand'.
Rodgers....Only example #16, Legend without Sri, trident held in 'Left hand'.
Mitchiner...Only one example Plate coin#190, Legend with Sri, trident held in 'left hand'.
West....2 examples..
First legend without Sri, trident held in 'Left hand'.
Second legend with Sri, trident in 'RIGHT hand'.
Eureka!!...Found one....This then pushed me into searching for this variation---They exist but they are a lot scarcer than the left hand trident...
As a bonus the new purchase is Ex-William Spengler..I'm very pleased to add this coin to my collection...Paul

@strange - you'll have better luck getting responses if you start a new topic for the questions on your coins instead of just replying to an existing topic.

....Sorry but I don't recognize the coins....Do you think they are from Kashmir?...If you start a new ID thread I'm sure, looking at the detail left on the coins, someone will know exactly what they are...Good luck.
