Ala ud din Sikandar coin is a scarce one. The condition is not very good but there is sufficient legend left to identify. Comments please

As per Wikipedia, he was Sultan for only one month and sixteen days. His coins must be rare  and not scarce!
As an aside, appreciate the overlays you have provided and you have filled up a lot of gap in the overlay thread.
Thank you!

Even as a non-specialist I can appreciate the great historical value of this coin. Wonderful to see it posted here and analysed so well. Thank you!

I must have missed seeing this one  :o although listed as scarce it must be more likely rare
