TuckHard Posted May 31, 2022 · Member Share Posted May 31, 2022 (edited) Hello everyone! I just made it over here. Southeast Asian history and coinage drew me in about three years ago and I've been deep in the books and articles ever since. This thread isn't really for all of that, however, I just wanted to create a general thread here for anything from Southeast Asia from the pre-modern period. Anything that is cast, struck, or other odd monies would be a good criteria for it (ie no modern struck coins).
