Great Work, Amit!!!!!!

I know how it feels to work with the coins of the city, you were born and brought up.

I also have the coins from most of the Years (in which the coins were minted) from the Gwalior Fort Mint, beginning from 1540 (Sher Shah Suri) till about 1811 when the mint was finally closed and a new mint was established in the City (Lashkar Mint). You have given me an idea to prepare a presentation on the same lines.

Thanks Abhay....I agree. I followed your foot steps and have now restricted my buying and reserch to the coins (and weights) issued in the areas in the current day Gujarat. This was my first part on Ahmedabad. I now plan to add mughal and then go back to the Sultanate era..........

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

Thanks a ton to all who have appreciated this effort. In fact, I would also like some constructive criticism to help improve the work for the next try.

Yes, Abhishek, you may soon see some more once I am able to list out the issues of various states as the catalogues have only a minuscule amount of information.

Peter, I have been inspired a lot by WORLD of COINS and various members on this forum - I already mentioned Abhay (who inspired me to focus on a small area to get together a (nearly) complete collection of the area, Jan and Barry (who have been my Guru's in the field of numismatics), Arthur, Amit (overlord), Tariq, Husain Makda (all of who have inspired the highlighting the coin's main features) and not the least - you, who has been all inspiring with excellent words of support. I have also learned a lot from other forum members - who are too numerous to individually name - from whom I have picked up something or the other.

Amit

PS: I had one frame of the coins of Lunavada which I will work on and post in a couple of days.

Additions to my collection from Recent auctions which will make the transfer of power as demonstrated on coins more emphatically.

Coins of RY 4 of Alamgir II - one with the Mughal symbol and the other with the Maratha symbol.

Dear Amitji,

Another inspiring post with aim to confined research and collection to specialised area.
I take it in two ways
1.Restricted to particular area is quiet time consuming and one should have ample patience to study and grow in his /her aimed collection.
One may miss opportunities to dip into vast ocean of Numismatics where more extraordinary and interesting areas are available.
2.Such research and collection gives satisfaction to collector to refine his collection with compiling of historical data in a presentable way .which is brilliantly done here.

I would like to see such presentation visually with coins instead of reading with photos of coins but for other members who are in far away places a good option to enjoy.

Cheers  ;D

Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.
