Title: Mughal, Dam of Aurangzeb Alamgir.
Post by: asm on July 08, 2010, 03:51:23 AM
I am confused with this one. The left image sees to read Shah in reverse while I am not certain if I have the orientation of the right image correct.

Please help attribute.

Zarb (..) Shah Alam(..) Shahi can be read on the obverse. Could be various Mughal rulers, but as the reverse has the Falus Mubarak legend, it most likely is an  issue of Aurangzeb Alamgir. The mint is located on the bottom of the obverse, but is off the flan.
