Thailand huge bullet coin

He said 121 grams.


I've never seen bullet money with surfaces like that.  Typically they are much smoother.  Of course most of the ones I have seen have been the smaller ones.

I agree with Conder about the surface condition ... very unusual, and unlike any I saw when I lived in Thailand.   I also don't recognize the dynasty mark although if you sqint right you might convince yourself you can see a Rama II mark.  If it is real, it would be near the 2 1/2 Tamlung size, but even with the wear(?) it is still to light (by 20g) given that you can see the markings. Unfortunately, that "bullet" size came much later than Rama II's reign.
