Humayun nisfi
« on: August 11, 2012, 06:03:35 PM »
I believe these coins are both Humayun nisfi 93x, but since the writing below the line on the lower picture (mint name?) is different, I am hoping for more information.

Right one is of Dar al-khilafa Agra.
Left too appears to be the same but the Heart shape appears to be off the flan (towards right), AH 938.

Very nice work ! both coins are well "dar al-khalifat" but the left one (938 AH) is from Lahore mint.
you may have a look to a zeno coin here:

There seems a bit of confusion, but both pieces are of Dar al-Khilafat Agra.

My super-modest coins are greatly honoured by the attention lavished on them and want to thank the experts for the time spent on them.
