Rupee Akbar Jaunpur mint undated Kalima type
« on: December 08, 2011, 10:09:57 AM »
Here is a piece picked up by me just yesterday and the coin really attracted me.. Please attribute the coin which seems like a kalima issue of Akbar. I saw the pics on Zeno but none matched this..
cheers

The mint name is completely off, but the # mark indicates Jaunpur (Liddle type S-10).

Than you may have overlooked this piece.
Mint is definitely Jaunpur, despite that the mint is of the flan. On the ZENO coin a part of the mint-name can be seen on the bottom left of the reverse. It is an undated coin.

Of course no exact date can be given, but probably it was struck in the 970's of the Anno Hijra.
