A full Certificate Of Authenticity is issued with this coin, signed by the recovering diver and on behalf of the Salvor.
These two coins are the only ones of their type to be recovered from the Halsewell wreck site. As they are not considered general currency for the period, it is assumed that they were personal effects of crew members obtained on previous voyages to India.
All numbers and letters are readable on both sides of both coins. These coins will make a good addition to any collection. Please note that one side of the Gold Mohur coin has a small nitch and the coin overall has a slight bow, although these points do not detract from its overall fine condition.
