Title: Akbar, Half Dam, Hisar Firoza Mint, KM# 22.19
Post by: Saikat on May 23, 2015, 10:57:36 AM
Hi,
Attaching a nisfi of Akbar. The mint as visible reads Hisar. I could not find a coin with Hisar mint in KM. I found Hisar Firoza (KM# 22.19) though. Also need to know the year of the coin. I think I can read 96x in numeral in the reverse.
Thanks,
Saikat

The coin is of Hissar Firoza with firoza completely off flan. The date could be 966,967 or 968Ah

Abhishek,

You are the boss but did you consider Hazrat i/o Hissar and the date too is odd. Looks more like (9)96 than 96X thought the chances of that date are extremely low........

This is definitely Hissar Firoza..  In case of Hazrat , there should have been a 're' succeeding 'Zuad'.. But here a clear 'alif' is seen after what has to be a 'swad' making it hissar.. And about the date one can see 9 and 6 together and 8 higher up and as such sashtad wa hast is clear making the date 968Ah

Here is how 'Hisar' is written , observe the date, 968.... There is no space to write the firoza part, otherwise I would have demonstrated it as well
