This category contains examples of countermarked coinage used throughout the Middle East. Hosts include Turkish Ottoman coinage, Indian Princely State and Britih Indian coinage, and the ubiquitous Maria Teresa Thaler. Many issues are currently understood to be spurious (i.e., applied to genuine coins but intended for sale to collectos). Also included are examples of coinage countermarked for inflationary or other political purposes.
