Akbar damra of Balapur mint / month "mihr"
« on: June 17, 2015, 04:46:46 PM »
5,05g
The mintname is widely off but can be identified with the ornament at 8 o'clock (left picture).
seems to be dated "sanah 50"

Thank you dear Coinsforever : ...quite modest indeed...but started at a time when nobody (or so) paid interest to indian coppers.

Really a good set !
On your dam, please, could you confirm that it's well the word "mah"which  is placed just under the digits of the date and over the "i" of Ilahi ?(=> "Ilahi 47 / mah / farwardi")

What a surprise!! I had that coin all these years and have never observed this anamoly. Thanks a lot Bernard sir.. It is indeed Mah above the divider of ilahi just below the date! This is something really extraordinary!
