Rare high quality bazarucco, period of Philip I-III (1580-1641), Melaka, Portuguese India and Far East

Portuguese cross within a dotted border / Portuguese coat of arms. 14mm, 0.98 grams. Malacca (Melaka) mint (in modern Malaysia - in the 17th century considered and administered as a part of Portuguese India).

SUPERB for these! The crude tin bazaruccos are usually almost illegible and are very rare with clear devices like this coin. Malaka was captured by the Portuguese on the 24th of August, 1511, after an attack on the city by a force led by Alfonso D'Albuquerque, the 2nd Viceroy of Portuguese India (1509-1515) and who was to become to the first governor of Melaka. The Melaka remained occupied by the Portuguese for the next 130 years, until the year 1541, when the Dutch occupied the city following an 8 months siege.
