Small AE coin, 3.08g ,Mughal fraction of Akbar, Delwara mint
« on: April 18, 2013, 06:00:42 PM »
Looks a bit Mughal on the left image,  I think I see 'Falus'  but that's about it, not sure of orientation of the other side

3.08g     AE12

Following the word "falu(s)" isn't it : "Agrah" ?

Now you mention it i can see it could well be Agra, can't make head nor tail of the other side however

could be Damri or Damra, weight doesn't quite fit either

I wonder if at bottom (under "falus Agrah") it couldn't be the date 1000?, with on reverse parts of this same date in persian : "(eik) hazar"... ???
With optimism..that could be a damri of Akbar of Agra mint, dated 1000 AH ?
even if the weight is a little too high ( heavier dams of Akbar may reach 20,9g/21g ie 2,75g for a damri, not far from yours??)

I have forgotten.. : the right picture is to rotate 90° clockwise to try to read the persian date.

I've rotated the photo, hopefully it can be confirmed that it is indeed a damri of akbar

Good and Scarce coin coin capnbirdseye.. Delwara mint is indeed a very scarce mint of Akbar.. According to Dr.Shailendra Bhandare, the mint is not the temple city of Delwara in Rajasthan but a town in Gujrat near Una .. The coins in the name of Akbar comes in the local Gujrat standard. The 3 gm(Trambhiyo) , 6 gm(Dhinglo) and 9 gms (Dokdo).. The legend as shown by Husain bhai is on the obverse is mint name Delwara abd reverse has 'Allahu Akbar, Jalle Jallallahu'..Among the three denominations the 9 gm is the rarest followed by 6 and 3 gm pieces.. I have all the three denominations in my collection and will post asap..

Thank you Husain & abhinumis that's really interesting stuff  8) 
 the coin is not particularly worn away but has hard crusty sand deposits which if removed would make the legend clearer

Thank you for posting your coins abhinumis, looks like they are hard to find in good condition, all the coins posted in this thread look like they have probably been buried & unearthed after some considerable time as they show evidence of pitting & corrosion rather than wear from circulation.
