Shah Jahan. Mint? Year?
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:13:13 PM »
Hi,

Kindly help attribute this Shah Jahan coin. Might it be Surat mint?
Where on the coin may I find the year - including the regnal year? Might it be 32?

Thank you!

Thanks Peter,

I'm very thankful to Woc community in enhancing my knowledge and susequently giving right direction to grow the collection and pursue hobby with more interest.

Cheers ;D
