Indore Silver Rupee Pattern on the market

Exceptional Pattern From Indian Princely State of Indore

Indian and Islamic coinage expert Steve Album released his fixed price list 225 this week. Looking it over, I noticed a most interesting silver Rupee from the Indian Princely State of Indore. This particular piece has never been listed in our Standard Catalog of World Coins, as it is exceptionally rare with only two examples having been traced. It is a machine-struck pattern of Shivaji Rao dated VS1943 (1865) with an attractive sun face and rulers titles on obverse and standard design on the reverse.

Steve has it offered at a fixed price of $2,400 and you can see a nice blown-up image at his website,
