This is again an issue of Akbar; mint Hazrat Dehli. The reverse shows part of the year (written out): Fi Tarikh Nuhsad Wa Haflad... (AH 97X).

Overlord,
Thanks for the fast work. What looked like similar coins are all three of different mints. Seems my lucky day. I will have the other 3 up tomorrow. Will keep my fingures crossed.

Is this KM#22.6 with the date AH 97(2) as mentioned in the Standard Guide to South Asian Coins...?
Liddle shows two dates. AH 972 & 977.
