Irregular - often hammered thin
NOTE: dateable to period only !
- Krause wrongly describes all similar coins as 1/2 Rupee (Deb). Deb rupees are only made of silver.
The correct name for this coin is 'Ma-tam', translated it means 'Red coin' (copper being red).
'Che-tam' is half the copper coin (weighs about 2.7 grams).
