Coin store in my area of Olympia, wa sold me this coin for $1. He had it labeled as the roman empire 27 bc - 498 ad. He had other roman coins and this one the markings were definitely not the same. Took some time but I tracked down that it is an ancient Indian jital 1296AD-1316AD. It is really cool and interesting and gave me a challenge to track down what it really was. Found it to be worth more then his "$1 roman empire coin" which definitely is a nice find in my book. Not that I would ever sell it though just get added to the collection that one day will belong to my son.
