My reply to Dilip Sharma:

Thank you for your inquiry. Our website, Cash In Your Coins, does not buy or sell coins. We publish and sell books about identifying and valuing coins and coin collecting.

Most collectors or dealers interested in purchasing coins like the ones you are offering (ancient Islamic silver coins) would insist upon authentication, which is not possible from images.

We suggest contacting a coin dealer, knowledgeable collector of Indian coins, or possibly a numismatic curator affiliated with a museum in India that has coins as a part of its collections to assist you in fully identifying and authenticating your coins. Once your coins are authenticated, you would perhaps be in a better position to find a buyer either in India or through an online auction site such as eBay.
