Humayun, AE 1/2 Dam, Dar- Al Khilafat Agra mint, 10.27g
« on: March 28, 2015, 05:47:09 PM »
I think part of the date in words is visible  AH 96*  so an early 1/2 Dam of Akbar

weight 10.27g  the first issue of the higher weight followed on by succeeding emperors

This design or type is seens only for 962Ah and 963Ah. So could be a nisfi of Humayun second reign or Akbar's first year!

Perhaps Humayun is likely, there is a coin on zeno with almost identical legend visible but gives the date as 962

Fi Tarikh Naushad Haftad ............ AH 97X
Only 2 or 3 mints issued coins with AH dates beyond AH 990 and Agra was not one of them.

o.k.. Confirmed then that the coin with you was in my collection few months back. The palm impression below the coin is mine. But a nice coin indeed! I had given away some to this seller sometime back... Happy that you have it now Anjan ji

These are not that rare! At best these can be termed scarce! Here are 2 more to add to Frank's list.. One with the mint mark of trident and another with mint mark similiar to yours... The last digit on both my pieces are missing too like yours but I have dams with both dates 962 and 963 with similiar mint mark

Humayun probably and chances of that is highest but may be Akbar I think.. Speaking of rarity, the fraction coins of Agra in late 970s and 980s are far more scarcer . I have one with me, willupload shortly
