Aurangzeb, Surat or Nasratgarh
« on: October 28, 2010, 06:36:25 PM »
I post here 4 coins which have confused me since Oesho posted his attribution of this coin. As he explained the same can be distinguished by certain characteristics.

Looking to the coins, I am not able to confirm either way but the circle of dots around the small circle in the top left around 11 O Clock on all these coins points me to Surat.

Please help. I am extremely sorry for the poor images.

Dear Amit,
All coins are of Surat mint.
The coins with an Alif (as part of the mint-name) within the seen of Jalus (as we discussed) are of Nasratabad, not Nasratgarh, as you mentioned in the header.

Dear Amit,
All coins are of Surat mint.
The coins ........ are of Nasratabad, not Nasratgarh, as you mentioned in the header.

Dear Oesho,

Thank you for the confirmation. As for Nasratgarh .....I still am confused how I did it. I do not remember having ever thought of Nasratgarh except for a few seconds when I was looking for Nasratabad in SCWC. If you had not pointed it out, I still read it as Nasratabad.......
