EIC Bombay Presidency, AR Rupee, Mumbai, ino Md Shah
« on: February 14, 2016, 06:40:04 AM »
Hello All! Sharing a Mumbai rupee from Bombay Presidency, struck in name of Muhammad Shah. Although this type is not particularly rare, this issue has the full AH date--coins with full AH dates are harder to find. (I've found a few with 3 digits of the AH date, but this is my first with all 4 date digits.) All the desirable features: mint name, ruler name, RY, as well as AH date, are clearly visible on this specimen.

Quite right, cmerc. A great one to show newbies the difference between an average and a nice specimen. The links are quite helpful in that respect.

In the links above, each of the Mumbai half rupee coins are absolute gems! They are super hard to come by, with or without the date.
