Aurangzeb, Silver Rupee, Burhanpur, 11.55g, AH 1108 RY 41

Brilliant mint strike with sparkling lustre !

An unusual dotted pattern ‘bankers mark’ on the edge at bottom, see pic below.

What a nice coin!  I had no idea that they would place banker's marks on the coin edges so I looked through mine and I have one!  I hope to get pictures posted this weekend.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Many Mughal and IPS (Indian Princely State) rupee's have a variety of 'bankers mark' along edges. I have seen star, cross, 4-clover leaf, rosette, etc.
