For this era, there were many kingdoms besides the Mughals. So except for a general catalogue like KM.
In fact, even for Aurangzeb Mughal coins, I do not know of any specialist catalogue as there are for some other rulers.

Arthur Needham and Tariq Ansari have announced that they have started work on the third book on the coinage of Aurangzeb. Almost a hundred mints, 50 years and the book covering all metals - Gold, Silver and copper will ensure that the book will be at least 2 volumes...

Thanks Amit, what are the first 2 books on.
The first one is on the silver rupees coins of Shah Alam Bahadur and includes the coins of Azam Shah & Kam Baksh. The second one is on the coins of Jahandar Shah. This one includes the Gold and copper coins of this ruler along with the silver coins. Both are fantastic works.

It is still at a very initial stage and will take time. Looking to my previous experiences with the authors and the publisher, I'd say 2 years would be the minimum.........
