hello Aniruddha,

I purchase 1942 coin for rs 300. And I think you can get the same coin for rs 500. not more than that. as i purchase the coin from a village goldsmith so i got it cheap.

yes, since its not pure silver and found quite commonly, i guess the values are low.

yes, the silver ration is 50% or less, and after taking in hand you will feel of having pure gilt coin. a beginer may feel it as a pure gilt coin. so don't pay more than rs 400 - rs 500 (max).
