Good fun acquisition, Abishek. Congratulations.

Why does Bahadurgarh remind me of Overlordgarh? These city name changes are like tomb gifts. As soon as the loyal guards disappear, they disappear. Vanity, your title is ruler.

Bahadurgarh silvers are consistently found in silver coins of shah alam i and later mughals. Coppers are albeit very difficult for any ruler
