Giyath Al Din Mahmud, G/G# B900 or B914?
« on: August 09, 2012, 04:27:55 PM »
This is my first coin of this type. Seems to me as G/G B900. But needs confirmation from seniors. I need to know about the mint and year. What about rarity of this coin? Sorry for the poor picture of the coin.

Seems like G/G B917. Last digit of date can be seen and it is 3. Not sure about the mint. But seems like 'ba or noon' 'ha or kha'.

I think that the unknown inscriptions at the bottom is mint name but I could not find a match. The closest match is the 'ha' but before 'ha' there is 'noon' or similar alphabet. Please help me to conclude. Here is pics from different light reflections.

It is a mintless type dated 933AH .. The inscription looks like a mint is nothing but 'nun' & 'ha' of 'Sultanahu' ...
