Like a collection of delightful macarons (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaron), except they don't make me fat ;) Well done, Saikat!

Congrats for new addition.
It's charm of Mughal coins collection With combination of limited records,few numismatic books, twisting  history and seldomly survived coins makes Mughal enthusiastic active and alive.
New discoveries and New mints are another USP of Mughal
Collections.

Cheers ;D
