Title: Akbar Rupee Identification Help !!!
Post by: jaspersaini on August 29, 2014, 11:46:09 PM
Hi, I have this Silver Rupee in my collection for some years. It looks like Akbar's Agra type Rupee.

The flower like mark is quite different than Agra type Rupees. Any suggestions? or its a counterfeit coin?


Thanks

It could be better a rupee of Ahmadabad and not Agra, designs are very similar; this mintmark is found on rupees dated 982 as yours.
Few coins are shown on zeno and you can find one of them here :
