Quote from: Figleaf on August 13, 2023, 09:50:49 AMThank you for that useful reconstruction. As per your reconstruction, the coin mentions the place of the mint and the name of the mogul. How do you go from that information to the name of the local ruler Chanda Shahib / Muhammad Ali Khan? Is Muhammad Ali Khan the same as the nawab of Arcot in your description? If so, you mention that the two palayams fell to Arcot in 1765, after the reign of Ahmad Shah. Why would they have used the name of a former mogul?Peter
