<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims.

The connecting ring is extant (not included as a separate item here, since no description of it is available), but the seal is lost.</p>

<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (diameter not reported) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally at an estimated 5 centimetres from the edge. The connecting ring is extant (not included as a separate item here, since no description of it is available), but the seal is lost.</p>

<p>Discovered in 1982 in the village of Māṇḍhaḷ (20.956099, 79.461490), in Umred taluka of Nagpur district. Apparently the plates were found while ploughing a field (exact location of the find not reported), then hidden under a stone block, then found again by labourers breaking stone into gravel. They were acquired by the Māṇḍhaḷ Itihās Saṃśodhan Samiti and presented to Nagpur University.</p>
