Alamgir II - Gwalior Mint - Unusual date AH 1174 RY 6
« on: November 22, 2012, 03:54:01 PM »
This Silver Rupee from Gwalior Mint, in the name of Aziz-ud-din Alamgir II, is normal in all respects, EXCEPT the date.

The date on this coin reads AH 1174 RY 6.

As far as I know, Alamgir's rule was from AH 1167 to AH 1173.

For AH 1174, the ruler was either Shah jahan III or Shah Alam II.

Is it possible to have this date combination for Alamgir II? All other coins of Alamgir II have dates upto maximum of AH 1173, RY 7.
