Sultans of Bengal - Daud Shah Kararani - Satgaon mint - G&G B981

Sharing a Daud Shah Kararani tanka, Satgaon mint. It's a nice specimen except for the shoff marks, with the Swastika as the mint mark, and is a smaller flan than the other one posted here

Very beautifull specimen. In some Bengal coins i find the design sometimes a bit to chaotic. This may also be caused by my little knowledge of Arab/Persian script, so a bit irregular placement of the legend quickly makes it illegible for me. This one has a very harmonious calligraphy. The shroff marks and also the die crack visible in the left picture just add to the character of the coin and make it an historic object next to an artistic object.

Anthony, you describe coins like sommeliers describe wine! This is a beautiful specimen indeed.
