Akbar Dam?? Help please.
« on: April 04, 2013, 04:54:43 AM »
This heavy copper coin is similar to the Dam issued by Akbar. But I have not been able to tally the image. Kindly help me identify the mint/month/other details of this coin.

Thanks and regards.

Yes.Akbar. If it weighs around 20 gms, it is Dam.

Thank You. The weight is 20 grams. But I am not sure of the mint as I have not been able to tally the image anywhere.
Thanks and regards.

Top left part of the larger image is where the mint name appears. If a straighter image without glare on that corner is posted, it might be easier. But from the appearance, I will go with capnbirdseye.
Please take a look at these two coins.
