I haven't forgotten my Gadhaiya coins; just been quietly studying and re-organizing to keep my study as accurate as I can possibly make it.

Meanwhile, I have had a bit of a buying spree (remember the doghouse?) and have substantially expanded my favorite series, the "curved head" type. Recently won these two in a bit of a bidding war, because of my love for the unusual!

First one, struck once, rotated 90 degrees, then struck again. Note the extra ribbon directly under the portrait; that doesn't match with either strike, so this one may be triple-struck!


Second one, struck first extremely off-center, so they centered it a little better and tried again.

With the extensive details from multiple strikes, the first coin's portrait appears to be sticking his tongue out at us. Very interesting pick-ups.

Very interesting multi-strikes. I can see why you wanted them, Steve. Those planchets must have been hopping around like jumping beans.

Nice find!

The reverse of the 2nd coin is really cool!

And on both coins you have a die match

Yeah, each coin is a die match with itself. I like it.

Thanks guys! I have a few more in my backlog; I'll have to image them sometime!

And interesting point, Paul; I do have a number of double-struck Indo-Sassanian coins, but in the 2.5 years I have been collecting them, I have never seen a overstruck example!
