India (Portuguese) 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupia 1881 and 1882

By 1961 India was pretty well fed up with foreign colonizers. The Dutch and English had gone years before, but the Portuguese were holding out in their three small enclaves of power on India's western coast: Damao, Diu, and Goa. Finally, in 1962, India kicked them out.
