Humayun bahloli, AH 941, Dar al-khilafa Agra.
« on: February 06, 2013, 06:22:03 PM »
Any ideas for the mint of this one? The obverse looks different to any of my  others, also coin looks less coppery and more Billon than usual

9.11g

Thank you Tariq, the colour coding on the link you give above doesn't show the  translation of the words, It's the red, yellow green part at the bottom I am interested in

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

It was just the final letter of Agra that interested me, it's a different way of ending the word compared to the same word viewed on other coins of this mint

Thank you Tariq but what is the red letter that comes after the A, that's the bit I don't understand

Actually it is written Agrah, but as we know the place nowadays as Agra, the 'he' is usualy omitted.
