A few pictures of the display I put up. Apologies for the poor quality of pictures caused due to poor light.

.....and the last frame is on the mints in Gujarat under the Sultanate, Mughals, IPS and the Colonial rulers.

Thanks for the encouraging words, Peter. Ahmedabad Coins form one of the pillars of my collection. Besides them,  the other mints in Gujarat form the core of my collection and I will find difficulties in naming any one min as the core. For each mint, I have some coins that I could say are my favourite.

Just find this post quite challenging work to organise and display coins of several mints from same state for numerous  rulers.
Display is quite colourful and eye catching.
May be I have missed reading  did you highlight coin weight system that was prevailed in whole of Gujarat covering these mints?
If already done that's quite remarkable achievement.

Cheers  ;D
Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

No. This was an attempt to get more people interested into the world of numismatics. Hence, I kept it to the bare minimum. I will attempt this in one of the future exhibitions where I plan to have all different denominated copper and silver coins in one frame.

Thanks for the support and the appreciation.
