Akbar, Dam. Mint: Ajmer. AH 996.
« on: April 27, 2019, 05:36:47 PM »
This one is dated, but the only i could find with this date (Muhammad Adil Shah Suri) does not match my coin.



dated AH 961 (= 1554 AD.),
Paisa / Dam? (ø 19-20 mm / 20,00 g / 8 mm high), copper, axis (as pictured) about medal alignment ↑↑ (ca. 20°),

Thanks and regards

Hi,
Not sure on the date. But the first picture is of a Akbar Dam from Ajmer mint. Hence the date can not be correct.
Please check this one
Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Akbar, AE Dam, Ajmer, AH987

Thanks,
Saikat

Thanks Saikat,

browsing the Akbar - Copper coinage - Ajmer - gallery on zeno shows the closest match with date 996.

The first 9 on my coin is partly hidden at the left edge.
