AKBAR - SRI NAGAR (KASHMIR) - IE 47 Aban Month - KM-93.15 - Silver Rupee
***********************************************************************************
Sharing another excellent eBay hunt, I consider this mint Rupee as rare and worthy of spending money.
Looked around on Zeno https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=183580, and found IE 48,
not 47 :), which is a similar coin.

18.6 MM - 11.33 Gm.Thick coin with the beautiful luster.

Expert comments are welcome.

I notice the fusion between the first digit "4" of the date and the "i" of Srinagar : an originality of calligraphy sometimes used by engravers on persian coins.
Ilahi month is "aban" / 8th.
a beautiful coin  :perfect:

This one shows the full mint  ;)
it seems that the 1st digit of the ilahi date melted with the "i" of "Srinagar" is found only for years 47 & 48.

Maybe the engravers were the same during those two years.
