Akbar dam, Kabul with countermark Ad'l kabul
« on: June 19, 2015, 01:06:07 PM »
Hi all,
Here is a dam of Akbar with countermark 'Ad'l Kabul' in a mihrabi panel. The undertype cannot be determined but most probably a suri paisa. Reverse also shows tracea of a octagonal panel with the same countermark. Normally the countermarks are found on Square and Octagonal panels but here is a mihrabi panel!!
