Two similar coins here (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,7728.0.html). So was this the standard couplet used on Jahangir coins of Qandahar?

I got these three Jahangir rupees today - A.H. 1025, 1026 and 1028?(RY 14).

I'd like to know why are Jahangir coins, in general, more expensive than others?

The heavy Rupee has the Sakht Noorani couplet.
