Help with Rupee
« on: February 03, 2014, 10:02:12 PM »
I need help with a Mughal Rupee that comes with a note

RUPEE AH 1135  MUHAMMED SHAH 1131-1161 MINT AZIMABAD  (436.12) 11.5 gr

However, Type 436.12 Rupee is rather different in Krause

The mint name on the top on the reverse is almost completely off the flan. However the small part of the legend that is seen on the coin confirms Azimabad. The coin on the link you have posted is surely not Azimabad. You can compare your coin with these.

Yes, Azimabad it is.
