The other issue of Humayun of Mandu mint is the half falus (G/G M213).
This issue is, in my opinion, even more scarce as the falus. The date is written out on the obverse.
An example is also illustrated in the Punjab Museum Catalogue #105-107.
The obverse inscription is given as fi-tarick nuhsad chihal va ... , however I presume that it should be read more precisely as: fi-tarick nohsad wa chehel wa (do) [In the year 942].

It's very well possible that the two figures to the left represent a 'dal' and 'wav' and as such forming the word 'do' = 2.

Nice, fine script, sarwar khan. Seeing them all together, the one that sticks out is Overlord's specimen, the first one: the only one with a round border around the design.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
