Akbar, Dam, mint: Atak Banaras

These are listed as common in KM by the low price but a search didn't bring up any from Atak Banares on WoC ?

What a coin!!! certainly not a easy one to find.. KM pricings are misleading a number of times regarding mughal coins.. But once again U made my day. Even I'm looking for this piece. Hope I get it sooner than later!!

How can I tell the month on these two coins?
 it's rather confusing, I'm looking at Atak Banares on Zeno & there is is Ilahi YR 40  month (07) Mihr  & then another also RY 40 but (01) Forwardin & yet another yr.40, month: (12) Isfandarmuz.

Thanks to abhinumis and Overlord for the inscription detail, I think coin one is definitely farwardin,

2nd coin looks to be RY44?  it does look like DI even with my limited legend reading skill

I agree with your suggestion.
