Akbar dams- Si wa panj and Si wa shash
« on: July 20, 2014, 09:19:40 PM »
Hi all,
The ilahi series of Akbar Dehli mint starts from ilahi 35.. But instead of the conventional month below ilahi year.. The first 2 year showed the year written in words!!
These coins are found for ilahi 35 and ilahi 36.. Both are scarce but I would call ilahi 36 very scarce.. Until recently(say 2 years back), no one knew about si wa shash!!!
So you have Zarb Falus Dehli on one side and ilahi 35 above and Si wa panj (thirty five) below

Yes I confirm for dams of Delhi" dated si wa shash.
Such dates in persian letters on 1/8 dam of Delhi mint have been discussed on WoC and at the end of the thread I remember I have posted a dam with such a date, you can have a look on it here :

Such a pleasure to see the Si wa panj without 'ye majhool' of ilahi.. Thanks Overlord!! Another type to get after.. I do have the damri in si wa panj but lacking the damri for si wa shash..
