Mughals, Shahjahan, Silver Rupee, 11.3g, 21.5mm, Dar ul Khilafat Agra, AH 1037 RY Ahd / 1627 AD



The coin a is a bit battered and knocked about with one test mark on each side that thankfully did not damage the legend.

Now that it is battered (I would call it slightly worn, all details are clear and the flan is complete), you can very well imagine how it played a role in the construction of the Taj Mahal. Can you imagine telling a skilled workman: we're constructing two mosques and a tomb here and we need some people to do the decorations? :D
