Akbar Jaunpur Geometric design type
« on: September 28, 2015, 08:59:33 AM »
Hi,
My newest addition and again a very rare copper coin of Akbar from mint of Jaunpur.. All the 3 denominations are known in dam, half dam and quarter dam of this type and each is rare in my opinion.. The coins are described in Valentine 'The copper coins of India' as well as in "catalogue of Punjab musuem, Lahore".. It is an opportunity to handle one of these and I'm glad to acquire one and share it among my friends.

I did not know this variety. Being a bit picture oriented, i also can appreciate this design very much. Is it really this blue, or is that a photographic artefact ?

It is a very rare type and comes in 970Ah only.. It's actually black and brown.. Took the pic under white tubelight. Hence, may be the bluish effect.. I hope one can appreciate the complete mint on reverse.
