Akbar, Silver Rupee, Ahmedabad mint, AH 984, Dotted Square border type

The coin has lovely toning and no test-marks. I can't make out the mint-mark on Obv, looks like scissors, knots, swastika with arms closed.....

In the quest for Excellence, there's no finish line.

Building on an existing thread instead of starting a new thread. Here is my recently-acquired specimen of this type, but different year. The test marks appear more prominent in the pics, but not as noticeable in the actual coin.

Mughal Empire, Akbar (I)
AR Rupee, AH 986
Ahmedabad mint


Where is the mintname? Below Jalal-ud-din or elsewhere? Does the mintname have a prefix (dar-us-... etc.)?

The mint name in most cases is always below Jallaluddin.. I have illustrated the mint name here. It has the epithet of dar al sultanate

Thanks a lot Abhishek! I have been trying to find a pic with a good portion of mintname showing, but couldn't find anything.
Also, what software do you use to write on the images? Do you have an ipad or a tablet?
