Sultans of Dehli, D0624, Mahmud bin Muhammad, AR Tanka, AH 814

Added a pretty scarce coin in my collection. Generally date goes out of flan but here the flan is wide enough to accommodate almost full date.

Weight: 11.17grams
Size: 21.5 mm




Obv: Al Sultan Al Azam Abu al-Muhamid Mahmud Shah Muhammad Shah Firoz Shah Sultani

Rev: Fi Zaman Al Imaam Amir Al-Moninoon Khaldat Khilafatah 814

Congratulations on the new acquisition. With over 2 cm a remarkably broad flan and well preserved. Would it have been struck for a special occasion?

Very nice ! Not much more to be wished in terms of placement of the legend.

Thank you for the comments.
 
@Peter- Its difficult to say whether it was a ceremonial issue or not.
