Aurangzeb Surat mint Rupee, both AH and RY years are visible.

The dotted border on one side.

The size of this coin is similar to the coins of Shahjahan from this mint.

11.42 Gm. x 22.2 MM

Very desirable coin, no shroff marks or other blemishes, central, clear strike and excellent patina. It brings out the glory of the empire. Congratulations, jaspersaini. It will give you pleasure every time you look at it.

More than desirable coin. Getting the RY on this type is a rarity. The early date cois of Aurangzeb, Surat normally are found without the RY. Getting the full AH date is also difficult.

Well centered strike.  I was following Zeno.ru for this mint and got a good specimen.

Updated the image.
