If Abhay sees this, he'll ruin his keyboard. :) How do fill those shroff marks? Good dentist? ;D

Haha. My Keyboard is still intact.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I have Muhammad Shah Coins of Gwalior from RY 1 to RY 26, with only RY 7 missing in between.

Most of my coins are without any Shroff marks. I have enclosed three of my coins - 113X/Ahd 1, 1144/14 (Same as Amit's coin) and 115X/22 from my collection for comparison.

Peter, you shouldn't have challenged Abhay on this. He probably has >90% of all coins struck by this mint.  ;D

Let Putin do the counting and Abhay's collection will be 123.369% complete. :)

The challenge brought out some crazily beautiful coins plus Abhay's keyboard is still droolless, so we all win. ;D

Abhay,

Did you notice that the first letter of the mint name (G or Gaaf) on the first and the third coin that you have uploaded are written differently? I have been able to see that in the initial years, the name was written as on your first coin while later into the reign, it was changed to how it is written on the third coin.

Amit.

PS: I have seen the same in Kora where this change in the first letter (K or Kaaf), (as I have seen) is there in the 20th and 21st RY but revers to how it is in Gwalior.
