Requester description: 1904 Easy to describe. On the obverse, 'Edward VII King and Emperor' is written with the effigy of the King without crown facing left.There is a beading on the border and the rim. On the reverse, there is a crown on top, two leaf and floral patterns on either side. Just above the bottom bud on the right side is a small dot on the stem probably indicating a Bombay mint coin.The words One Rupee India are written in English and also in Persian Below the persian inscription is the year of minting 1904.
