Jahangir, AE Dam, Rawani type, Bairata Mint, AH.1021/RY.7
« on: November 22, 2020, 11:23:48 AM »
Posting a Rawani type Dam of Jahangir, AH.1021/RY.7 from Bairata mint. It fits with KM#126.3 in a way, but differs in showing mint name below AH and RY shown below "rawani". Please correct Krause reference if a better match is met with.

Zeno 73939 looks like a perfectly good fit to me. KM126.3 is not illustrated in my 4th edition of KM17. In such circumstances, I'd trust Zeno got it right.

It is indeed Bairata mint issue of Jahangir.

Thank you Peter and Amit.
What struck me was that similar type issue of Akbar is there in Krause as KM#30, but not illustrated for Jahangir.  Zeno has exact Jahangir matches, but how come Krause missed its Jahangir version! I thought I missed the reference on Krause. Thank you.

These coins were not very well known till some years back. In fact, I bought my first coins at a fairly high premium till I started finding them in lots....... The probable reason these are not included in KM is that these are difficult to read.............

BTW, Abhishek (abhinumis) recently showed Heavy weight coins of this mint too.
