Quote from: Seeker55 on August 12, 2022, 08:44:21 PMExcellent ID, Saro! Building on the Aurangzeb 111x and RY x8, the only two possibilities are 1115/48 and 1116/48 (both listed in Krause, KM # 300.53).

Quote from: Seeker55 on August 14, 2022, 02:04:09 AMOn examining the photos in Krause's "South Asian Coins and Paper Money" (2013) it is apparent that the Lahore rupee of Muhammad Shah matches (KM#436.40) while that of Aurangzeb doesn't. I didn't check that carefully enough before.
Quote from: Seeker55 on August 14, 2022, 02:04:09 AMIn Krause are listed the years for this coin 11xx/8 and 1148/18, so I suspect this coin is one of those. I was assuming the third stroke of the 111x was a 1, but with the way the Arabic numerals are made it could equally well be the start of a 2, 3, or 4.
