    Description

    British India. George V copper Proof Pattern Restrike Mule Rupee 1937-(c) PR66 Brown NGC, Calcutta mint, Prid-Unlisted, SW-8.9 var. Quite possibly unique in copper, this handsome specimen is void of noteworthy surface marks and retains mint red clinging to the devices in protected areas. The 1937 reverse is posited to have been included with George V obverses in restrikes dating from the 1940's through the 1960's. This example was originally purchased from the collection of Patrick Brindley, who was Chief Engraver for the Indian mints of Bombay, Calcutta, and Hyderabad from 1947-1961.
    Ex. Patrick Brindley Collection
