Mughal Empire, Farrukhsiyar, Silver Rupee, Itawa, 11.33g, AH 1129 RY 6, KM 377.34

Itawa produced some fantastic coins with full die specimens. This is one of them.

And when Mitresh says superb strike, he means superb strike. My keyboard was in danger of drowning in drool. I really like the light-footedness of the design. The calligraphy dances like the Mughal's girls and the flowers are just right as decoration: not too many, no stems and all different. Come to think of it, just like the Mughal's girls also. ;) He was an incompetent and cruel rules, but he had good taste in coins.
