    Muzyck I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a biscuit today.

    I recently won a lot of 10 "Islamic" coins that has been a challenge. I bid on it with interest in an Assam Half Rupee that was obvious from the photos in the listing. There were a few other moderns included that were easy to identify but there were a number that are ancients and one other that looks like an India Native States Rupee, but I can't find it looking through the Krause "Standard Catalog" ranging from 1700 to 2000.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    This one wouldn't fit in my initial thread...

    #6 Silver 2g. 13mm

    My gut reaction is that this is from the Guptas, or possibly one of the other various dynasties that copied the Western Kshatrapas. I might be able to narrow it down eventually, unless someone else feels like doing so.

    Thanks. I'll start researching based on that info. I was sure I had a similar coin tagged but have been unable to locate in my binders.

    Thanks! Looks like a Kumaragupta I silver drachma, c. 415-455. I did not recognize the ear.
