Please help attribute....... Akbar?
« on: July 12, 2011, 07:17:07 AM »
I believe that these are all Malwa issues in the name of Akbar. Can they be individually attributed? If yes, I will hive them into individual topics........ if all of them are not, I will remove them and post them as a separate thread.......

I can't make out much of this coin, except that the left image needs to be rotated by 180 degrees.

Thanks Amit, At least you can read now 'Falus' on the obverse side. So far I have been unable to read anything sensible on the other side.

Aah........now I see it. I saw a date where you see the Falus......... which was the cause of having posted the image upside down. I have changed the position of the right image........ does it now make any sense?

Wt of the coin is 6.1g.

Coin weights are as follows:

1.jpg is 2.7 g
2.jpg is 3.4 g
3.jpg is 6.5 g
4.jpg is 6.1 g

All these are not standard Mughal coin weights. However, I am not too sure if they match the Sultanate standard weights too.
