Hi all,
Here is a heavy weight dam of Jahangir from Ahmedabad mint dated 1015Ah. Wt- 24.9gms.. Rawani type
Heavy weight dams were issued till ry 6 along jahangiri and sawai rupee. These are very scarce to find and that too in good grades. Do comment.

nice and envious addition, i like this series of heavy dams. I was under the impression that the heavy dams were in the range of 27-30grams.

Thanks Bububoy.. Like the silver rupee, these coppers have also 20%-25% excess weight...

Here is the 1015Ah Bernard sir. Probably the earliest date recorded for heavy dams

Oh yes, thank you for the sketch. I see now ! (the dot of "0" is in fact at bottom between the two "1")

All the dams I have seen were dated yr 2, this dam of the 1st year of issues is with no doubt a great rarity. :applause:

After a lot of to and fro between Abhishek and I, we have now concluded that the 20% Heavy coins ended with RY 2. 1017 / 3 are 25% heavy coins (I will be posting an image soon) and this experiment (of Heavy weight copper coins) ended with the issue 1017 / 3. Coins of 1018 / 4 are normal weight coins.
