Malwa Sultanate
« on: September 06, 2020, 12:04:09 AM »
Hello, I am in need of your good help in assigning these 2 fractional (presumably 1/4) AE Falus from the Malwa Sultanate to ruler/period as well as to the mint. So far, I have only found similarities in relevant catalogs but no identical pieces.
1st coin 2,22 g, 12,33 mm
2nd coin 3,33 g, 12,25 mm

What was the closest coin you found and where did you find it?

Hi Peter. As a result of my research the 1st coin is most probably a Malwa Sultanate 1/4 Falus, Ghiyath Shah Khalji, AH 905, 1499 AD. I found an almost identical but 1/2 Falus here:

I have not yet found any equivalent to the 2nd coin.

The upper pictures of both coins look the same to me, but the lower pictures are different.

Hi Peter. You're right. The reverse of the 2nd coin leaves me at a loss. So far I have not found a comparative piece in any catalog or publication.
