Shahjahan Rupee - AH 1048, Ry 12
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. 11.42 Gm - 21.1 MM
2. 11.38 Gm - 20.8 MM

The design and dimensions are almost identical, with free pineapple on each coin:).
From the design, these are similar to the Multan/Qandahar Rupees.


Checked the Zeno, these are Multan mint Rupee.

Even the date is the same, but the dies are different in quality. The engraver of the left coin was more talented than the engraver of the right coin. The dates and "pineapples" are quite different, both in form and quality, showing that they were punched in separately.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
