I understand the lowest values are the hardest to find. Correct?

Has anyone ever investigated why the Narnol coins use such a distinctive script that you can recognise them from far away?

The lowest values are indeed the hardest to find.. Damris of any mint is a bumper find. Most do not have enough script on them to attribute but when they have, it is a fantastic coin!

I confirm ... Shah Jahan coppers are not common and the small  denominations are very difficult to find.

I join pictures of my 1/8 dam of Narnol with a good part of the mint name.
