Being a beginner - as in started looking at coins last week - I've come across some descriptions for which I cannot find definitions. They may be obvious to anyone with a little experience, but since that's not me, I need some help. I did try the forum search function, and spent a few hours reviewing subjects, but came up with nothing.
I've been studying Indian coins minted before 1900. Here is a rupee listing I saw:
1840(B&C) INDIA S&W-3.33 TYPE A/1 "W.W." - 28 BERRIES, KM#458.
I checked the Krause Mishler #, have counted the berries, and found William Wyon's initials. Very interesting!
Now, I would appreciate it if someone could tell me what the following terms mean, and where I could find out about all the versions that show up for slightly different coins:
(B&C); S&W-3.33; and Type A/1.
I'm already enjoying exploring the community here, and look forward to being a part of it.
