Title: Akbar 2 tanki with wrong denomination
Post by: saro on March 09, 2012, 03:38:26 PM
To follow the previous interesting 2 tanki coins shown by ASM, I join here one from Ahmadabad mint, of quite common type, but which shows a wrong denomination : "cho tanki" (4 tanki) instead of "do tanki"...
All characteristics of the coin are well those of a 2 tanki :
8,04 g / diam. 16mm.
/ month : Amardad
