Hi
During this lockdown, I am going through coins acquired as bulk and I found two Zodic Rupees - most likely early replicas but looking for fellow collectors opinions.

Both coins have 2 holes on edge(opposite) and most likely to be part of jewellery and have Swan stamped on edge.

I can't read the scripts but as these are quite few die variations and mints; I can't find exact match with existing images on ZENO. So wondering if you have an opinion.
Thanks

Both show the mint as Ahmedabad.

The legend is somewhat legible on the top image and reads, bottom UP: Zarb Ahmedabad Nur al Din Jahangir Shah Akbar Shah (Struck at Ahmedabad [in the name f] Nur al Din Jahangir Shah ([son of] Akbar Shah. The lower one also seems to bear the same legend.

Did a little more search. Spink sold similar lot 76 - India, Mughal Empire, Jahangir (1605-28), Zodiac Rupees (7), lat... - 2 coins are exactly what I have. so I am satisfied that these are copies - Still very old and happy with these.
