One of the more scarcer mints,  it's amazing how many different mints  (around 30) struck coins in such a short time

At this point of time, the mints were still more or less still under Mughal control. I am puzzled as to why only 30 mints and not more have coins struck in this rulers name. I could understand that a few mint masters were not sure of the ruler was firmly in the saddle but for most, it should have been business as usual.
