Nice coin with two very clear dates! Hopefully it will re-tone over the decades. I am quite fond of Aurangzeb's silver coinage. The flans are much prettier than on most of his coppers - this one no exception. If only the test mark had been a few millimeters to the right inside the loop of the و, it would have been almost invisible!

Thank you very much for your appreciation.
Correctly said about test mark still I am happy that they did it at a proper place without damaging the script.

I agree it is a better test mark, and these are scarce without I can gather so it would be much to ask of it. I don't think much of it as the coin is beautiful!

The toning can be fixed in a week if it is ever needed to be. But then again give a 'dirty" coin to the cleaning wallas and you will double your money.

This is certainly a fine coin with all the elements clearly seen.

A nice coin!!

Aurangzeb issued coins from various mints. It is my dream to collect atleast one Aurangzeb Rupee coin from every mint. I have reached about 45 coins.
