Encased Cent

Recommended Posts

Here's one I couldn't resist buying just for the fun of it. :ninja:


It only cost me €5,00 (inclusive of postage costs) .


The coin itself is (as far as I can tell) Unc with some original lustre. Sadly, getting it out of it's housing would probably ruin it, so it'll stay there.

This is a particularly nice piece. Encased Indian cents are a scarce find, and when they are found they are usually well worn from having been kept in pockets etc. I have several encased wheats, I collect local issues only.


So far the only Indian cent related exonumia I have found is one that was made for a local resort in about 1900-1910, it is about 4" in diameter, it is huge.
