Muhammad Shah bin Hasan Shah He ruled kashmir 5th time 1530 - 1537.Muhammad Shah was released from prison and enthroned for the fifth time, with Nazuk Shah being relegated to heir apparent. At around this time, Kashmir was invaded by a Mughal army on the orders of Kamran. After a short occupation, the Mughals were ousted but in 1553, the country was again invaded, this time by a Kashghari army under Mirza Haidar Dughlat. The Kashgharis were successful but did not stay long. They negotiated a treaty and withdrew, having first had the name of their Khan, Mir Said Khan of Kashghar, read out in the khutba and struck on the coins of Kashmir around AH 939/940 (1553 CE). Muhammad Shah eventually died and was succeeded by his son.

Hi,
I know it is difficult to read Kashmiri sultanate coin but as you mentioned "Ghazi" in obverse, shouldn't it be K90?

K89: al-sultan al-a'zam mir said shah
K90: al-sultan al-a'zam mir sa ghazi

Here is my coin which was attributed as K90.

Thanks,
Saikat
