I'm looking for any information, from the specific to the general, about coins made by the East India Company. I have a few of these coins, and I'd like to learn more about their history and see if they are modern copies or not.

I think even more interesting are the Portuguese and French colonies in India, as well as the coins of the various Princely states.

I have a couple of the East India Co coppers. If anyone has pics of the silvers that would be cool!

Also, Cerulean, I like your signature: "Wanna take seignorage away from the Fed? Spend *any* coins!"
