Ex Dr V.J.A. Flynn Collection and Baldwin's Auction Sale 53, 25 September 2007, (lot 1555).
Baldwin's noted in their catalogue the following comment "This type was probably struck at Dehli, but whereas the date on this specimen is clear, the mint-name is barely visible, as is the case on other specimens known to the cataloguer".
