That's already a nice basis for the daily coinage of this period of the Dehli Sultanate, Grant !
These are all still fairly common coins, wich also do not break the bank for us collectors. Note that your two shiny silvery specimen have likely been resilvered by modern Indian traders so they look more appealling. That is something you have to be aware of if you go for more expensive coins.

That you Anthony, yes it is fairly easy to win these coins at auction without paying through the nose! For me that is one of the attractions.
I thank you for the caution of resilvered coins, it had not even crossed my mind.
Hopefully I can build this into a nice series, building both forward and back in time.
