Jahangir
AR Heavy 1/2 rupee ("Sultani"?)
Kabul mint
AH (101)5, RY-1 (need confirmation for RY please)

Weight 6.75 g (= 13.50 g approx. for full rupee).

These coins are referred to as "Sultani" in several places, but not sure why.

An exceptionally nice coin that gives a good impression of the refined culture behind it. TFP.

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