THE GREAT SUBCONTINENT CHOPMARK HUNT

June 19, 2020

Hi folks,

 

On many silver coins historically used in China there are specific marks stamped into them. These marks come in various shapes and sizes. A study is being made on this by a dedicated society.

 

In the great subcontinent hand struck coins, in general silver rupees, also have a series of marks impressed on them. These can occur on the obverse, reverse and rim. 

 

Data is to be collected from photographs of these coins so that a comprehensive data base can be built up for research purposes.

 

The full research team and details will be advised soon.
