Hello
Would like help identifying this coin. My first thought was India but I cannot find it in any book.
Picture makes it look like a mess but it actually has some mint lustre.
Regards, Gary

You might want to start with Numista's British India page. If you can get the diameter and weight that will let you know which coin you have.

According to my precise calculations this is about a 26 mm coin, which (if copper) might be the 1/2 anna:

If smaller, then albert is correct.

Thanks to all...I appreciate the knowledge.
I am concluding it is the 29mm 1/2 anna coin.
I do not know metric but it is a good 3/32 inch over 1 inch which, at .039 mm to the inch, figures way closer to 29mm than 26
I am thinking it is the 2nd issue...it is a thick coin.
That's my story and I am sticking to it.
Glad I found this forum and will spend some time here...
Have some odd old world error coins well american too.
Thanks again, Gary
