I note that your RY 32 example has one dot in the L of Narnol.  Your RY 34 has a group of five dots.  Ny RY 32 and 33 both have groups of 5 dots.  Again, I wonder if this will be seen to have some meaning when Akona gets the pictures of everybody's coins together......

Type number 300, variety 66. Mind boggling. How far can/will you go to get all the mints?

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

Aurangzeb has his coins minted from over 100 mints....... The rupee above is type 300, mint 66.

How far can/will you go to get all the mints?

I had started out with trying to get one coin of each Mughal mint of each emperror..........later I toned it down to one coin of each Mughal mint (irrepective of the emperor) + I coin of each year of the ruler ......... seems to be an excersice in futility.........I generally give up fast, but here, my aim, though watered down, is still set.

I am now trying to collect as many mints as possible and as many years as possible with out being too bothered.

......and that would be before you try to get every variety of every date/Ry combo of every emperor........ Good Luck with that one  ;D !  Where you syop will depend on what particular interessts you develpo.  Maybe all dates and varieties from certain mints whose history you want to study  ;) ?

Don't struggle!  You'll only sink deeper!
