A rupee of Aurangzeb, Muazzamabad - current day Gorakhpur. Issued AH 1094 RY 27. KM#300.60. I hope my attribution is correct.

As per SCWC, this mint under Aurangzeb issued coins for a few years only. However, on Zeno, I found one coin out of 3 uploaded there outside the date range mentioned in SCWC. My coin too is outside the date range mentioned.

The mint name is written on the coins on ZENO as well as Numismaster show the 'abad' at the bottom to the left of the date while on my coin here, it is above the date............. The way the Muazzam is written too is different.......

Please help.

Dear Amit, An excellent acquisition. Congratulations.  A very nice coin of a pretty rare mint place. An unreported date AH1094/Ry.27. The earliest coin on ZENO is AH - /Ry.21. Than comes your coin and the next is dated AH1099/Ry.31 (this date was earlier misread). The latest recorded date is AH1100/Ry.33.
Also in the lay-out of the reverse legend there is a certain development, which show that your coin resembles more the coin of Ry.21.

Thanks Oesho. This afternoon I will post another coin which was sold to me a couple of years back as Muazzamabad AH 1118. A detailed look at the coin after I got this one has led me to read the other one as Azimabad, 1118/50. I seem to have been lucky.

Your coin is a bit different from asm's coin, on yours mint name is written in 2 lines.

If possible can you crop both the coins images only mint portion for comparison.

Appreciate if you post cropped & combined images of both coin with portion indicating different styles of mint name.

Cheers ;D
