Dear Abhinumis,
Alwar isn't the commonest mint for Akbar's dams, we may classify it as "scarce".
I have done, a few years ago, a graph which gives the % of Akbar's coins listed by C.J. Brown and Whitehead in the catalogues of mughal coins in Lucknow and Lahore museums, I'll post it on WOC and so you will may judge by yourself.

Dear Bernard ,

Please be so kind to share the graph mentioned about mints, if you have posted the said graph kindly share the link.

I'm interested in learning about common vs un common mints.
Cheers ;D

Thank you for digging this post up. I admired the alwar coin in the pic after going through the post again. These are my first initial coins in seriously collecting Akbar coppers
