You are welcome dspenciner. Thanks for the response too.
Indian coins especially of the Princely States have some very special designs. That makes them rather easier to identify. But some that share some characteristics and look alike at first sight are issued by different states. That is a real challenge to attribution like Datia and Orchha. I shall be sharing some such images later. Hope this thread is helpful.

This is an issue of Sayaji Rao III. This has "Badoda" on obverse. Coin does not show the name of the issuer specifically but mentions as Gaekwad in general.

It was a practice of the rulers of Baroda to indicate the issuing authority with the initials of their names. Thus Khanderao Gaekwad is indicated by "Kha" and "Gaa" written in Devanagari script.
