Dear Sushil Kumar Agrawal,

1) Please post both images of one coin in one post

2) Please ty to upload the maximum size of image possible (the site allows maximum 65kB).

3) Please post pictures of different coins in different topics. If you post too many pictures in one post, you will yourself get confused about the replies posted.........

4) Trim the image as close to the coin as possible so that you could get a sharper or larger image............

If you follow the simple points noted above, I am sure, you will enjoy and will soon be in a position to identy the coins yourself.

BTW, the image posted reads Shahjahanabad, RY 11. Shahjahanabad is current day Delhi. The rulers name is on the other side of the coin.

Hi Folks,

i note, as a moderator, a recently reported post which I have ignored because it should not, in my view, have been reported.

For correct identification both obverse and reverse need to be shown, that gives both the ruler and the mint and both years, depending what was available on the strike.

The information provided to help in identification has been helpful to the poster. If the poster has problems with this please PM me.

I do not understand why the poster reported the post. He posted the second image after my comments. May be he misunderstood the meaning of the 'report post' button.

I have merged the topics after Arthurs post.

Coin is Muhammad Shah, Sahib Quran type, Dar al Khilafat Shahjahanabad mint. RY 11.

Misunderstanding. Pls ignore.
