I believe this is also a Rupee coin of Akbar - is that correct.  Could you please help me with attributing the year, mint etc.  Thanks

Kalima type Rupee (if the weight is OK) of Akbar, AH 991 or is it 997? Mint is off the flan.

My take on the date is AH 997.  Given the weight of 11.05 grams this would be a Kalima type Rupee then correct?

Normally the Weight of the rupee is slightly higher - about 11.3g or more........but this one would definitely be a rupee.
