Mughal Aziz-ud-din rupee
« on: November 20, 2019, 07:01:35 PM »
This I'm pretty sure of the ID, but I would like opinions on authenticity and value. I believe it's KM #455.2, Aziz-ud-Din Alamgir II, AH 1168/2 (not because I see the 2 but because that's the only version specified to exist), Shahjahanabad, 11.2g, 21.3mm. If it's authentic, and what I think it is, it might be worth hundreds of $US based on recently sold items.

Perfectly correct attribution. The RY 2 and the min t name are present at the bottom of the lower image. The date 1168 on the top image.

Thank you, Amit. Do you agree that it's a rarity worth hundreds of $US (at ₹71 to the $US that would be maybe ₹21300)? Does it have the look of authenticity, in your view?

This is a fairly scarce coin or should I say a rare coin. ZENO has just one image of a coin which was in Spinks Auction in June 2011 at 220 pounds - same price as what you mention. One sold in CNG india auction in 2013 at 20,000 INR +++. So now you can make a guess of its rarity.
