Excellent find of a coin that is heavy with historic significance. The chaotic system of succession to the throne did much to weaken the Moghul empire.

Mughals were notorious in their succession. If to go into details, I am reading an excellent book on Mughals.

This is the Rebellion issue of Jahangir, Mint: Allahbad, issued during the reign of Akbar. I would attribute it to the reign of Akbar since there is no name of Jahangir (in fact Salim at that time).

I pan to move this to the Mughal coins sub-board under the heading of Akbar if no one has any objection. There are many similar coins in the same category there.

The coins bears the Ilahi-month Farwardi and Ry.45 of Akbar. For a comparible coin see: https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=56346 which bears the month Ardibihisht, Ry.45.
