Coins minted from 1862 through 1873 all
have the date 1862.
The Quarter Rupee coin has two Reverse designs, which can
most easily be identified by examining the flower at the top of the coin (12
o'clock position) and the diagonal slash in the "1/4".
Reverse I - The top flower has petals at its base
that are long and curve downward. The slash in "1/4" is long, the top
almost touching a flower. Reverse II - The top flower has petals at its base that are short and
less curved. The slash in "1/4" is short, the top being well clear of
the flower above it.
