a mystery word on akbar's urdu zafar qarin dam
« on: May 17, 2011, 09:51:43 AM »
The dam in question is a well known variety of the "Urdu Zafar Qarin" undated dam, with wide flan, often overstruck on old Suri paisa (early series of these dams); the legend has always been read as: "zarb urdu / zafar qarin" but it appears that there is an additional word after "falus" which, as far I know, has never been noticed...and never read...I haven't found a credible translation for it : "HA R" or "RaHA" (or "JA", without dot ?),the letter "R"  cut the "A".
You can see a similar coin on zeno.ru : http://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=79908
All other dams "urdu zafar qarin" are not concerned.
I would be pleased to obtain informations from members.
