I don't think that's a dam of Akbar but of a dam Shah Jahan / Daryakot mint

There was a rather long discussion on this mint on Fb and it was concluded that the coins with the mint Daryakot and Kotri are in fact all of a mint at 'Dariba Kotri'.

What a pleasant surprise. I was told that it's Akbar. I surely welcome a Shahjahan Dam as I already have lots of Akbar Dams. Thanks Saro sir, Amit sir.

Thanks Amit for updating the mintname, "Daryakot" or "Dariba Kotri", we are well speaking about this same coin  ;)  (one posted few years ago on WoC by RG and the reverse of mine with a good part of the mintname)
