Have you ever wondered what a die sinker in Moghul India made in wages? Or how many rupees would buy a Japanese gold koban in 17th century India? Or how many jitals would buy a maund of paddy rice in the Dehli sultanate? Even if you haven't, you may find the answers interesting or - if you are an economist - fascinating. They are on pages 71, 53 and 10 respectively of 
Prices and Wages in India (1200-1800) by Najaf Haider. Whatever your reason for downloading the booklet, it is certain to give you yet another view of the coins in your collection.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
