OK, hopefully I've uploaded the pics right.
This is an Indian fanam gold coin. There are 3 possibilities here:
2. repro from 1970s
3. original (I think it looks like one from the Mysore princely kingdom 1799-1868. Obverse: Narasimha in Yogabandha mudhra (hands on his knees). Reverse: Formalized legend "Sri Kantirava)
Let's understand one another here, this is nothing special regardless how it is determined. I just think it is a neat coin. They were made in the hundreds of thousands, 6mm across, and about 0.3-0.4 grams. the alloy varies (usually 18K+). I am getting the gold content tested on Monday (goldsmith is sure it is gold).
What I would like here is a discussion on which do you think it is.
All info would be appreciated, because regardless of the outcome, I intend to keep the coin and just want to know about it.
