Akbar Berar Rupee  with flower ~ Tir month

Slow Corona time shipping, and finally I got it :)

Nice patina, but you can see a lot of cracks on one side. There are no test marks on the sides.

Mint name on the coin reads Berar. Berar had the coins with Birds engraved but I have never seen a flower, that too placed such that the month becomes almost invisible. The calligraphy looks as if it is an inexperienced had. Would have been better if the weight was known.

With very few doubt, the  month is "Tir / تیر " (2 dots of "i" and the final" r"are present)

11.44 Gm. weight mentioned in the listing.

The design is like a mix of two different dies. But let's put this under Berar mint :).
