Sharing another Shahjahan Rupee, Surat mint,  AH 1051, RY 15 ( Not on Zeno ).

Almost complete die,  11.47 Gm.  x  23.1 MM

There are no test marks. AH digits are almost on the edge but still visible.

Your comments are most welcome.

I'd add to your characterisation that it is very well preserved. A very nice coin indeed that will be a pride of your collection. Congratulations, jaspersaini. May more such coins find their way into your collection.

Glad you posted it here. It doesn't matter if the type/date/mint combination has been posted before or not. These clear pictures are really helpful to build a collection of illustrations that show the whole die. Taken together, they lower the threshold to recognising these beautiful coins.
