Post by: Saikat on May 27, 2018, 10:57:02 AM
Another beautiful coin from Jahangir.
This one is a silver Rupee from Akbarnagar Mint with dual decorative borders on both sides.
Weight: 11.05 g
Dated: AH 1021.
Ilahi Month: Farwardin
Reference :KM# 145.4
Note : The coin was very harshly cleaned with all trace of patina gone. So, I gave it a bath in sulfur infused water.
Thanks,
Saikat

You make very fine dust of sulphur and mix that with water. It will not dissolve but will form a suspension for some time. Put your coin in it and make sure you give the mixture a shake time to time. Not very effective and takes time but the mixture is reusable.
