 :like: Congratulations!  I think too that dams of Srinagar mint are not very common.
Few ones are shown by Valentine, p237.
The 1st coin shows a nice full mintname  (dated Ilahi 38 & month farwardi)
The 2nd : Ilahi 48, did you confirm "Khurdad" ?

Once upon a time, say a year back srinagar was an uncommon mint and coins used to be offered in the price range of 30-35$ per coin. But recently a huge lot of srinagar dams were discovered near jammu weighing approx 35 kilos. The prices have come down crashing to 10$ per coin. I have a 12 month set of this mint. Nice coins btw

Since  you are active  market trends  tracker , which other mints coins have been crashed.
It's time to add missing  mints  8)
