Sultans of Dehli, Islam Shah, AE paisa, Kalpi mint, AH 953 -
« on: September 11, 2015, 05:22:18 PM »
I've been cataloging a lot of old, 'neglected'. copper paisas which I'd bought as a lot in Delhi, a few years ago.While I have been able to identify many, some are still confusing.

Below I've attached pictures from an Islam Shah paisa - AH 956. I am not clear on the mint. Also, the reverse has a knot, similar to the Kalpi mint (D1003), but there appears to be a 'ha' on the obverse bottom which I'm not able to understand. Could it be Delhi in any way?

I would appreciate any help in attributing this.

Thanks,

Vishal

The "knot" looks like an upside down heart shape with an X inside, familiar from Akbar's coppers, but also used by other rulers. Otherwise, other members are better placed than me to help out.

Hi,
I think it is Islam Shah Suri paisa of Shargarh Urf Quanauj mint. I think this will be G&G D1026. Is the year 956 AH?
Thanks,
Saikat

Can we clarify the date, is it 956?    Shargarh Urf Quanauj doesn't list that date in G/G except for types with double line with knot

Iam sure that this coin is of  kalpi mint as I have a clearer Islam shah coin dated AH 952 one of the earliest issues of Islam shah.
