Akbar Dam, Lahore, Isfundermuz Month, Ilahi- 40 , (KM 32.17).
« on: November 08, 2014, 02:20:19 PM »
Hi,
Presenting a dam of Akbar of a common mint (most of my dams are common!). Although common, I love its decoration which I haven't found anywhere.
Classification from seller : Lahore, Isfundermuz  Month,  Ilahi- 40 , (KM 32.17). Weight 20.48 gm
Thanks,
Saikat

Well, the condition of the coin makes it uncommon. Also, are you aware of the different types of coins of the same mint? This coin has Lahore with a 'do chashme' He.

Hi,
Thank you for the reply. I looked up Liddle and feel that it might be the type C-44 with missing bordering circle. Comparing with other coins, from bottom to top what I can read is
Side Reverse:
Isfundermuz
Ilahi
40
Side Obverse:
Zarb
Falus
Lahore
Unfortunately I can do only pattern matching and as I do not read the language any finer point of the coin will be beyond my capability of understanding  :(.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thank you,
Saikat

Edit:Picture corrected as guided.

The B of zarb is just above the zar.

Very nice coin ! I agree with asm, so good grade dams are not at all common...

(And the date is well 40 as said by your seller (there is clearly a dot after the digit 4)

Hi ASM,
Thank you for the correction! I have changed the picture and hope it is now correct.  I found a similar dam at Zeno.

Hi Saro,
Thank you for pointing out the zero. I have corrected the image now.

Thank you all,
Saikat

Thank you for that overlay, Saikat. I am amazed at how fast you have picked up the technique.

That is actually an exceptionally good coin & worthy of any collection, nice ornamental darts as well!
