India (British) 1/12, Quarter, and Half Anna and Half Pice  1833 to 1858
India (British) 1/12, Quarter, and Half Anna and Half Pice 1833 to 1858

These are old, cool coins, dj. Since you indicate your specimen as heavily worn, you cannot expect to sell it for more than $1 or $2 US dollars.

However, in tip-top shape, you can expect a few 10s of dollars for these pieces from British East India. The coin in our picture has little wear, but the stain on the bottom detracts from appearance and therefore value. This coin might sell retail for $5. It is just not a nice-looking coins. A dealer buying it would probably pay $2 or so, hoping to make a typical 100 percent profit for handling the coin.
