A friend has four coins that I was unable to identify, does anyone have any idea of what they are? I think the last two might be tokens.

@arusak, first welcome to CCF. Second, while this is outside my area of knowledge, I agree that your fourth piece is a token--I believe a so-called magic square token. To help determine if you have coins of the Princely States, I recommend looking through this thread below. The primary contributor has vast knowledge of this area of numismatics.

Your first is from Bundi, and is a more popular type. It says VIC/TORIA/QUEEN/(Date) on the obverse in English, and RAM/SINGHI/(Date) on the reverse in Devanagari with a VS calendar date. The same design was used on the rupee and it's fractions; a rupee is about 11 grams.

Second is a later Bull and Horseman jital, drnsreedhar should be able to ID when he comes along. It's probably from the 1200s or thereabouts.

Last two I think are tokens; I agree with Spence that the fourth is a magic square type token.

Also, what is the last digit in the date of the Bundi coin? Looks like 193? to me but the last one I'm not sure on.
