Not very easy to obtain, I found this coin in a reasonably good condition. Please help with the month if it can be read at all. Both coins on Zeno are also Ilahi 31, Month Mihr. So was this the only time they were minted?

Hi Amit ji,
So far all the coins of allahabas(Allahabad) I have come across are the same with 31 Ilahi, month Mihr.. I have a very fine specimen of it which is exactly same as yours and other coins on Zeno and will post the pics soon

Look forward to see your coins......and it appears that the mint operated for a very short period of time.

On Zeno, both Jan Lingen and Shailen Bhandare mention the coins don't bear an Ilahi month, so how come the month of 'Mihr' is being insinuated?

As per Shailen Bhandare on Zeno, the reading on the coin is as below:

Obv: Muhr-i-Ilahabas (Stamp of Allahabad)

Rev: Sanah Ilahi 31 (Ilahi Era 31)

Can someone overlay, mark or identify "Mihr" on any of the the featured coins in this thread?

Mitresh, the word Muhr at the bottom was earlier read as Mihr - so a reading error.
