Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, AE Nisfi, Ahmadabad, 98?1
« on: May 30, 2020, 08:09:52 PM »
Posting a nisfi of Akbar from Ahmadabad mint. On the obverse, "zarb falus Ahmadabad" within scalloped circle. On the reverse, "nahazad wa hashtad wa ?ek". Numerals 98 are visible. The year is imo 981. Please comment.

An excellent acquisition. The nisfi's of Ahmedabad are extremely difficult to find and this is a short, less then two year issue. In fact, the dams of this type are not easy to come across.

Regarding the date, I would second your guess. However Saro and Abhishek (abhinumis) are the experts and I leave it to them.

Dear drnsreedhar, I join Amit to say that half dams / nisfi ( so that smaller denominations), of Ahmadabad are  much scarcer compared to dams, specially the Hijri dated ones and in addition, I think that  yours is of a very rare type  ;) :applause:
(981 is confirmed for your coin :the last digit is off but fortunately the date in persian ending by "eik"is well legible)
