141. Terengganu Coin Pitis Sultan Baginda Omar 1849

image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin

image 2: highlighted inscriptions on the obverse


        This is the same coin as I posted earlier here in a nicer condition. For those who are collecting Malay Sultanates coin, I suggest that this coin is a must in your collection. I repost the information of this coin for your convenience.

       Lot of these coins were found to be off-centered struck. A pair of perfectly-centered and off-centered struck coins would be good for collection I suppose.

      I think a price range of RM5 for poor condition to RM50 in a top grade condition is suitable for this coin.

Hi lunaticg,
The rarity meant here is not rarity in the market, which of course you can never bought this coin in the open market. The rarity here refers to the possibility of finding this coin, if a hoard of old coins were dug from earth. I believe almost near to 100% that counterfeit of this coin is not exist, at least yet, because these coins were discovered by metal detecting activity. By the way thank you for your visit. :)
