Akbar. Dam. mint: Narnaul (Narnol) or later imitation??
« on: April 27, 2019, 05:32:44 PM »
Maybe someone can help:



Paisa / Dam ? (ø 17-18 mm / 20,16 g / 10-11 mm high), copper, axis (as pictured) about coin alignment ↑↓ (ca. 200°),

The right pic is illuminated from below. So you can see a lot of illuminated edge below (- don´t read this as legends).

Thanks and regards

 :)

This is one of those Dam which are provisionally attributed to the Narnaul (Narnoi) mint of Akbar but are more recently thought of as being later imitations of Akbar's coinage.

Yes. The date is (10)04. However almost nothing of the date in words is seen on the coins.
