I was following this ebay auction - thinking I might put in a last minute bid but I forgot about it. I was expecting the lot to go for about 10.

The final price was....surprising

Somebody seems to know their chuckrams in great detail, to be able to value them at that level.

I have a pair of them as well as well,
but they only cost me $3 each, out of a dealer's junk box.
My knowledge of them is superficial, relative to Indian coinage generally, so $3 each for me is OK, without necessarily being a bargain.

If you put Travancore into a CoinArchives search and scan through the recent sales, types with the six-pointed star seem to be selling in the $200-260 range, though I am not sure if the denomination, etc is the same as in the eBay listing.

(I learned something new today )
