Gujarat sultan, G125 Mahmud shah-I, Half Tanka, Muhammadabad
« on: September 24, 2019, 07:55:17 PM »
Here is a coin rated rare by G&G. Obv legend is "al sultan al azam Nasir al dunya wa aldin abu al fath". Rev legend is within single square and reads "Mahmud shah bin Muhammad shah al sultan". Date is off flan. There is no illustration of this particular type and weight in G&G, but reading on the tanka G124 fits this one. His other silver issues with square reverse contains Mahmud shah al sultan inside. That leaves no other options though there is no date seen on this coin. Please post if any other option will fit in. Thank you.

Clever sleuthing! I think you can take the silence as agreement. May I suggest a short article for the Journal of the Oriental Numismatic Society (JONS)?
