Rare 1911-C Pig 1/4 Rupee Silver Coin British India High Grade Quarter Detail
In short, our price includes Peace of Mind!! 1911-C “Pig” British India 1/4 Rupee Silver Coin Prior to the 1912 re-design. Few “Pig” coins remain in circulation since most were melted and redesigned. Quarter Rupees minted for 1911 were withheld from circulation and later melted, therefore increasing the value of the fewer remaining coins such as this one, that were already in circulation and that had been taken out of the country. Note : See the arrow in the first 2 pictures pointing to a closeup of the Pig/Elephant figure on the obverse, and to the absence of mint mark on the reverse indicating “Calcutta Mint”. Our in-house weights and measurements are as follows: size:19mm; weight: 2.9g (approximately). The King is shown wearing a robe with a small elephant on it. This elephant was thought to resemble a pig with the trunk appearing to be a pig snout and the short legs not appearing very elephant-like. This offended the religious sensibilities of many, so most of the Quarter Rupees minted for 1911 were withheld from circulation and later melted, therefore increasing the value of the fewer remaining coins such as this one, that were already in circulation and that had been taken out of the country. From 1912 onward, the coins had a redesigned elephant. No mint mark = Calcutta mint Description and Provenance: Part of a collection of foreign stamps and coins from the estate of a long-time collector of numismatics from Texas during the 1930s and’40s. Coin is uncertified but it is estimated to be high grade under 5x magnification. Coin has not been cleaned. Our clear closeup images can provide more accurate grading. As noted in the U. National Holidays observed by the U. Postal Service (post office is closed on those days). Please bear this in mind when leaving feedback. All reasonable offers will be considered.
