    I'm pretty sure it's a dump from India. There are lots of them and for the most part they take more patience to attribute than I am willing to give. If I recall, most of them are from the 1800s. Hopefully, someone else will chime in with more information. I know there are some collectors of these on CT.

    As above, looks like a princely state coin from around the 1800's. Looks real to me, I'm not sure I've ever seen these types of coins faked.

    Thank you both for your input-I now have a starting place to track this coin down to its origin.
