Akbar Falus, description needed
« on: May 06, 2017, 05:48:16 PM »
Hi,
I got this one in a recent auction. The description given was
Akbar, Copper Chaharam Hissa, 5.02g, “Mintless” Type, Ilahi Month Isfandarmuz,Year 42
But what I read about "Chaharam Hissa" is 1/4th of Tanka weight, i.e. half dam. So, is this description correct or it is "hastam hissa"?
Thanks,
Saikat

It certainly doesn't read "Chaharam". I have difficulty reading "Hashtum" but, from looking at similar coins, that's probably what it reads.
