My pair of Kelantan Pitis coins. According to my source, this series is among the rarest of Kelantan Pitis, even rarer than the first Pitis, SS1. Relatively, while my source has a few hundred pieces of pitis coins, he only has 2 pieces of this coin, one in extra fine condition and another in good condition (refer to Image 1). The one in extra fine condition will cost me few hundreds, hence I resorted to a poor condition (Specimen 1).
And today, I acquired another coin of this series, by a pure luck. Plus, it has an extra feature. It seems this coin has a set of "horns".
Upon acquisition of the second coin, I decided to part myself with the first coin. But only later I found out that those coins are of different varieties, perhaps they came from different mould sets. A beauty of Malay Sultanate coinage.
