A coin of Ahmedabad, issued during the reign of Akbar. Ref: KM#33.01. I read the month a Mihr and the date looks Ilahi 39. Please help confirm. I have arrived at the date as Ilahi 39 since it can not be 29 nor 49 and I do see what looks like a 9 in the second digit of the date.

I agree with Saro that the month is Amardad. The year is indeed probably 39, but the Ilahi year on these issues of Ahmadabad is often truncated.
