Very Fine 1862 Victoria Queen Half Anna - British Indian Coin

Type British Indian Coins - Numismatics

A very fine condition ( which is very rare in case of copper coins  ). 1862 Victoria Queen Half Anna .

( Good condition silver coins are easier to find whereas gold coins are , invariably in good condition )

Regal issues ( i.e. after East India Company ) of Half Anna were minted for a very short period ( from 1862 to 1873 - Victoria Queen - all having  the year 1862 . After 1877 minting of Half Anna Coins was discontinued . Some silver rupees of same period have the same die as the copper half anna )

A very rare coin

Obverse - Victoria 's dress  has 4 and half panels.

Reverse - Number 1 in " 1862 " is slanted at the top.Letters " ANNA " is more or less   below the  line HALF " .

At Ebay.in on 14-11-12 a similar Victoria Half Anna Copper Coin ( but not as Fine as the Coin shown here ) is being bid around Rs. 3500 . The Bid can go even higher.
