    I know there is another thread about Tokens but It was a very old thread.
    I don't know how the Mods feel about resurrecting old threads.

    I recently purchased a Token, RAM DARBAR
    Weight : 12.47 gm. Diameter : 29 mm

    It has not yet been delivered but I can't help but wonder
    IF this may be a modern replica rather than a genuine Token.
    Also I cannot make out what the date is supposed to be.
    I purchased this more as a curiosity.

    The story of these tokens is a fascinating one.

    I agree with that, I have two of this type of tokens.
    One is an early Cast bronze that looks like yours. the other is a more modern one that I think is a replica but made of silver...

    This one may only be silver plated.

    Interesting. I know little about these, I do know that those that say East India Company, like mine, are fantasy temple tokens - tourist trinkets.

    I am not sure of that. I do think the discoloration comes from being poorly stored with other coins. I note the crescent shape on the reverse, it reminds me of silver coins that acquire toning in a bag type storage atmosphere.
