   The core of this offering is the personal collection of John Deyell, formed in South Asia during his travels and residence there from the early 1970s to the late 1990s. At least four substantial Indian collections were purchased in whole, and many single pieces were added through extensive travels and contacts with other collectors. One of the finest collections ever formed in this series, it provides many plate specimens for both the Rajgor and Goron-Goenka works, and an anchor for Deyell's unpublished monetary history of the Sultanate, Rupar Bangla. Deyell had previously formed collections of punchmarks, Mughal, and most of the other Sultanates, selling them intact as his monetary research shifted focus. As the volume and number of rarities in the Bengal collection made finding a single buyer unlikely, it was lotted and offered in the March, 1999 Taisei Singapore auction. About 60% of the lots did not sell and were purchased as a group by Dr. Prud'homme. My priced offering (List 63B) includes material from both collections. John Deyell has written an interesting article on the shroff marks which are so often found on this coinage.
