    Hi, very interesting piece you have. On the obverse, am I seeing an eight armed figure with two hands in prayer and six holding various objects? If so, that tends toward India, Tibet, Nepal. The reverse is a representation of a Chinese cash coin, but does not match any listed in Craig's 'Coins of the World, 1750 - 1850'. The symbol at the top however is Chinese for 'Great'. Also, Siam/Thailand produced no cash type coins. Will watch to see if someone can shed more light on this. Please let me know about the arms. Best wishes and good luck, Jim
