Quote from: TTerrier on January 18, 2020, 11:59:24 PMThis one is a work in progress - if I can get some help on the legend I will finish the overlay and update this post. The yellow portions on the obverse overlay are confusing me - the one on the right may be part of zarb? I have no idea about the one on the left - perhaps I have Khilafat incorrect. Any assistance is much appreciated.I have a few of these Akbar dams and a few more on the way - is it still possible to build a reasonable collection of Akbar dams? I don't feel a need to chase extreme rarities but I don't want to start in a collecting area where I will quickly run out of coins that are reasonably obtainable in the market. I am not so much concerned about price but whether the coins are actually offered for sale. I would like an area where it will take years to build a collection - I know I can do that with rupees but I like the look and feel of the dams more.And now on to the first one!

As I mentioned in one of my other posts my goal is to do one of these overlays for each coin I acquire as I find it helps me decipher them - sometimes its a process of elimination as I colour in words I know I can get some idea of what must be missing.
