HI,
This is what I think is a dam of Akbar, mint Akbarpur Tanda dated 989 A.H.. Kindly comment and confirm the attribution.

Hello Abhinumis,
For me, it isn't Akbarpur Tanda but Agra.
The date 989 is unusally placed between "nuhsad (900)" and "hashtad (80)".
This type is : Valentine n°25 p.93

Thank u so much Bernard, I overlooked this coin in Valentine and it is a exact match as given in the book.. So it is Agra, 989 A.H
I was unable to distinguish the 'gaf' with the 'kaf'. Both Akbarpur and Agra begin with 'alif'.. And in most dams of Akbarpur, there is little on the flan after the 'Kaf' of Akbarpur and in Agra too the 'he' of Agra is off flan.. So got confused. Thanks for the correct attribution

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