Hello,

I have recently purchases several world coins and I am having difficulty identifying a few. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Coins numbered left to right.

1 - 19mm x 3mm, bronze or copper, 8.0g

2 - 20mm x 2mm, bronze or copper, 6.8g

3 - 23mm x 3mm, bronze or copper, 10.5g

4 - 21mm x 1.5mm, bronze or copper, 4.1g





Thanks in advance,
dslobo

dslobo.

When taking photos, please avoid taking them at an angle. Also, post each coin separately, cropped and rotated to the right orientation.

House keeping aside, the 4th coin is from Ceylon. Can find it here:

I suspect coin #2 is 1 Paisa from Sikh Empire - Amritsar of the India (Princely States). Haven't been able to nail down the specific coin yet.

@ds, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes please next time one coin per post so that we can help you the best. The last coin on the right is a medieval copper of India with the nick-name "octopus man". With better pics, we probably could get you the name of the king and a date range. Here is a link to one example from a prior thread:

I agree that the fourth coin is Chola ("octopus man" type)
There's an article on these at

https://cccrh.files.wordpress.com/2...-2017-06.pdf

There's also a virtual tray of Chola coins about two-thirds of the way down the page at

It looks like yours might be Sahasamalla

I am technically challenged as I am using a cell phone. I tried all sorts of angles and lost much of the detail.

Thank you all for providing your feedback. You have provided much more than I was able to find myself.

I will keep trying to improve the images. But, I am out of luck when it comes to figuring out the orientation.

David Graham is right for no.2, no.1 is also Sikh/Kashmir.

No.3 is a scarce copper coin from Khanabad (Afghanistan), KM#84A

andyg - Thank you so much for the info. Do you have more details for the Sikh/Kashmir (#1 coin) and the Khanabad (#3 coin)? Thanks again.
