<p>A set of five plates, two of which (here numbered Plates 4 and 5, %OB00162g and %OB00162h) carry no inscription at all. The first and last of the remaining three are inscribed only on the inner side, the second on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3.2 cm from the edge. The plates are linked by a ring, on which the seal is also hung by a copper band attached to the back of the seal. The seal is blank like two of the plates. At the time they were studied by Kielhorn, all components were assembled.</p>

<p>Inscribed only on the inner face of the first and third plate and on both faces of the second (plates 4 and 5 are blank), with 8-9 lines per page. In a good state of preservation. Campus size and character size are estimates. The inscription is apparently unfinished, leaving empty space for dṛṣṭam at the beginning and ending abruptly in mid-sentence. </p>

<p>Discovered in the vicinity of Bālāghāṭ (21.812899,80.183777) and sent to the Asiatic Society of Bengal in 1893. The accompanying letter stated that they were found "some time ago, hanging to a tree in the jungle" (#Kielhorn_1907-08:267). They were in the Asiatic Society's possession when Kielhorn studied them around 1905, but #Mirashi_1963 says their present wherabouts are not known.</p>

<p>A set of five plates, two of which (here numbered Plates 4 and 5, %OB00162g and %OB00162h) carry no inscription at all. The first and last of the remaining three are inscribed only on the inner side, the second on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3.2 cm from the edge. The plates are linked by a ring, on which the seal is also hung by a copper band attached to the back of the seal. The seal is blank like two of the plates. At the time they were studied by Kielhorn, all components were assembled.</p>

<p>Inscribed only on the inner face of the first and third plate and on both faces of the second (plates 4 and 5 are blank), with 8-9 lines per page. In a good state of preservation. Campus size and character size are estimates. The inscription is apparently unfinished, leaving empty space for dṛṣṭam at the beginning and ending abruptly in mid-sentence. </p>

<p>Discovered in the vicinity of Bālāghāṭ (21.812899,80.183777) and sent to the Asiatic Society of Bengal in 1893. The accompanying letter stated that they were found "some time ago, hanging to a tree in the jungle" (#Kielhorn_1907-08:267). They were in the Asiatic Society's possession when Kielhorn studied them around 1905, but #Mirashi_1963 says their present wherabouts are not known.</p>
