Finn235 Posted February 8 · Member Share Posted February 8 I have an elaborate web of saved queries set up on ebay to try to catch almost any combination of keywords used to describe Indo Sassanian coinage, and I try to check for new hits at least once a day. This far into my collection, most of what I see is just the same thing over and over again, but a couple weeks ago I struck (figurative) gold! India, Chahamanas of Shakambhari Present-day Rajasthan in NW India Somalladevi, queen consort of Ajayaraja II (1110-1135 AD) Billon Dramma Obv: Imitation of Gadhaiya Paisa (ca. Series 1.4.4) Rev: Nagari legend Sri SoMa/ LaDeVi in two lines Not a whole lot of time for a full write up, so I'll just link back to the thread on the "other" coin forum 😉 https://www.cointalk.com/threads/indo-sassanian-holy-grail-ar-dramma-of-sri-somalladevi.386367/ Unlike that specimen, which was far and away my most expensive Indo-Sassanian at $250, I spotted this one at a starting bid of only $10, with $10 in shipping! Except I blinked and realized it wasn't bid at all... I smashed the Buy It Now button so fast I'm pretty sure I gave my knuckles whiplash! 13 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
