Suckered by a Shah Jahan KM 235.19

Yes I know what I have previously posted but this one looked so good in the picture and the price was reduced.

So falling for the double trick of a coin with pretty calligraphy and a price reduction has me off track before I really start.

I will post pictures when it arrives.

Well the coin has arrived (quickest post ever from England) and it looks wonderful in the hand. I need to do some playing with the camera to do it justice.

The colour tint is a lighting problem.

The calligraphy is magnificent.

I agree that the coin is a fantastic piece and would love to have a similar coin in my collection. Here is the image of the coin to the best of my ability. RY date is 9 and AH seems to read 1046 but I am not too sure. I have difficulties with the mint name.

Will take some better, I hope, pictures over the weekend.

On a slightly different flan but very close to a die match from first view. Will spend some time checking over the next few days.
