Akbar. Dam. Merta. AH 989. Q: Where is Merta
« on: March 12, 2013, 07:06:46 AM »
A dam of Merta, AH 989.

I was under the impression that the Merta on these coins is the place called Mirath or Meerut in Uttar Predesh not very far from Delhi. Yesterday, I saw a response from two gentlemen on the FB group who mention this is not the Mirath or Meerut in Uttar Predesh but a place in Rajasthan where there is evidence of Mughal activity around the time these coins are dated.

Plese help.

Would this thread be relevant to your question?

Oesho's discription on the associated thread is at this time uncontestable I believe.
