Standing Kali / Ranga Rau in Nagari. 9mm, 0.38 grams. Unknown mint in Karnataka. Herrli #3.04 var.

This is a very interesting Kali type - the style seems more British/Dutch rather than native, but this variety seems to be unpublished. This might be the earliest of the colonial British or Dutch Ranga Rau fanams, struck in the 17th century. Very intersting and rare coin.
