Very nice coin Overlord... Akbar died on 4th Aban ilahi 50 and hence a rarity. Here is my dam

Here is my dam
Excellent! Full Dam or Half? I also have a dam dated Ilahi 50 on which the month is off (of Bairat, I think).

In addition : another one (full dam / 20,54g)
I notice that the "zero" digit of Ilahi 50 is the heart of a flower...
