Great coin, Overlord. Coppers of Jahangir are difficult to come by and in this condition it is even more difficult. And as usual, an excellent lesson in reading coins.

I think this one could be overstruck on an older (probably Suri) issue as the calligraphy apears 'broken' at places, but I could be wrong.
