Title: Akbar dam, mint identification, Gobindpur?
Post by: capnbirdseye on August 11, 2012, 04:11:45 PM
Here's another one that I struggled to make legible from under a thick layer of crud, looks clear enough to read now, there's a little symbol that doesn't show up in the photo so I marked it in red, I can't match the mint to any of my other dams so far.

Is the mint & Ilahi year legible ?

Looks like your right as usual  Amit  :)  comparing to another coin on zeno mine appears to be Ilahi Farwardin ?

Farwardin looks likely......but yet need to learn a lot.
