kindly help ascertain mints of the following coins; saying that I'm assuming attribution to Aurangzeb is correct as claimed by the seller, kindly do correct if that's wrong :)

i tried matching with coins on Zeno & Numista but failed miserably as the characters are far too confusing for me

Dimensions & Mints as per the seller
#01
Dia: 21.77 mm
Weight: 11.18 gm
Thickness: 3.62 mm
Mint: Golkondu(a)

#02
Dia: 25.06 mm
Weight: 11.24 gm
Thickness: 2.94 mm
Mint: Surat

#03
Dia: 22.2 mm
Weight: 11.24 gm
Thickness: 3.51 mm
Mint: Khambayat

is there some link where one could find at least the mint marks of various Mughal rulers or maybe a book?

TIA

The Mint attribution is correct. However, it would be better if all three coins are posted in different threads, for future reference.

The Golkonda coin is dated AH not seen / RY 9; Surat is AH 1093 / RY 25 & Khambayat AH 1075 / RY 7.
