Post by: asm on March 08, 2010, 10:47:04 AM
This 6.5 g coin is 12 x 13 mm in size. i believe the date is Ilahi 46. Please help attribute. Is it a Malwa style falus of Akbar?

This is still a problematical issue. Just see the remarks with ZENO#58173 (http://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=58173), #58742 (http://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=58742)
All coins seems to be dated Ilahi yr.46. My specimen weighs 6.84 g., The weights of this type of coin doesn't fit in the Tanka, nor in the Tanki series, but shows in weight a similarity with the Malwa issues of Akbar. Therefore it may be a fractional Ilahi-type Tanka of Malwa style.
