Two similar coins here. So was this the standard couplet used on Jahangir coins of Qandahar?

I got these three Jahangir rupees today - A.H. 1025, 1026 and 1028?(RY 14).

I'd like to know why are Jahangir coins, in general, more expensive than others?

Thanks, Overlord. Great coin, picture and especially analysis. I applaud your way of sharing your knowledge.

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

The heavy Rupee has the Sakht Noorani couplet.
