Hi there - what's the community's view on these? They appear to be 2 att coins from Thailand, late 1800s.
The one on the right, if I've read it correctly, is dated RS 109 (1890). The date on the coin on the left seems to be 1247 (?), which makes no sense in the RS or BE dating systems.
Plus the left-hand coin appears to be worn and have lustre, which is odd. Both are fairly crude.
Many thanks!

I don't know anything about this type, but according to Numista, the earliest date, struck at the Hamburg mint were dated 1249. All others have 3 digit dates.

The look of the first coin definitely looks strange when compared to other examples of this type I've seen

I would guess it's a Chula Sakarat date.

Agree with Numister and coinwroldtv. Not the real thing.
