Hi,
Attaching a rupee of Shah Jahan form Akbarabad mint. This type of coin have kalima in middle line and the name of the caliphs above and below.
A similar coin was shared here. However the legend arrangement of this one is different.
I tried to put an overlay on this coin. Please point out if I made any mistakes.
Weight :11.43 gm.
Thanks
Saikat

Very well done, Saikat! This is what will make these coins accessible to collectors with a rudimentary knowledge of Arabic characters only. In this case, it shows how almost the whole die is seen on the coin, a recommendation by itself.

If you are happy with coin as is, fine. If you would want to fix it up a bit, warm, soapy water should solve fatty and muddy substances and return some shine, without affecting the patina. Dry well.
