Bombay Presidency, Ahmedabad Mint, KM#260.2 - with RY
« on: October 25, 2010, 08:25:57 AM »
As per KM and also as per the discussions I have had with friends including Salvete, the coins in the name of Md Akbar II show only the AH date. I was surprised to see the KM#260.2 coins with RY. It was not a one off coin, but was a lot of 20+ coins with a majority showing the RY on them.

I upload pictures of two such coins that I picked up.





I would like to know the views of the experts on this.

Well, it appears that KM, as usual, has messed up on this one too. All these coins seem to have the RY on but apparently they have been struck such that the RY almost always goes off the flan.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I agree, Peter. It is these small points, ignored in the major catalogues which make a collection different and in fact better.
