Jahangir Dam Bairata Mint RY13
« on: June 04, 2020, 04:07:33 AM »
Hello everyone,

I am looking for some help on this coin 19mm  20.77 gm.  The seller described it as being from Fathpur but I can't seem to figure that out.  I think it is an Ilahi type coin with year 3X but that's as far as I can get.  Any help is much appreciated!

Jahangir, Bairata mint. Sanah (RY)13. AH must be 1027. Part of AH. 10XX is visible above Bairata. AD date will be 1617/1618. Most probably 1618.

Thank you Dr. Sreedhar - that is exciting news!  Apparently the seller and I are equally confused.  This is my first copper of Jahangir (completely unexpected!) - I will do my best to construct an overlay - now that you have identified the mint I can see that in the inscriptions.
