Another coin with almost all of the legends and date on the coin.

A point which struck me as odd is the date combination. The year 1093 would be RY 25 & RY 26. Is this date combination  possible?

In the picture the date 1093 is very clear. In the RY date, 2 is also vey clear. the second digit with the coin in hand is clearly a V which would make it RY 27.

Dear Amit, I presume the second digit of the Ry. is a (heart-shaped) 5, making it Ry. 25.
This is as you correctly observed, together with Ry.26, the only possible date combinations for AH1093.

Dear Oesho, it is a cleat V making it 27..........I will try to clean the coin and post an enlarged picture in a few days.

Hi Amit,

I agree with Oesho hence my first post on this thread but cleaning will find the solution.

I attach here a scan showing the RY after cleaning a bit. In hand it clearly looks like a V so 7. But 27 does not fit the AH date.
I will try to take a close up photograph of the coin on Sunday to see if I can do something better.

To add too the mystery, here is a similarly dated coin.

Yes, there can be no doubt about the date on this coin. AH1093/Ry.27. A clearly mismatched date, but it can't be denied that it exist.

Aurangabad seems to come with the mint name at the bottom (as per the image posted earlier) and with the mint name at the top.

The Date appears AH 1072 RY 5 but what is the dot after the 5 on the revers at the bottom?

On the later years (atleast Ry.27 and later) the mint name is shown at the bottom.
Earlier years the mint name is shown at the top.

Checking for comparisons on Zeno, I found another variety........the initial type with the mint name on top with the Mehr Couplet.
