RARE! Imitative silver sharukhi (light tanka) of Babur (1525-1530), imitating Kabul mint, Mughal Empire
Medieval imitation contemporary with the original issues. Imitating the mintless/dateless Badshah type from Kabul (cf. ur-Rahman 60 (for type). Kalima in three lines across field; all within ornate circular frame; titles in outer margin / Name of Babur three lines across field; all within hexalobe; titles in outer margin. 24mm, 4.46 grams. Kabul mint.
Very interesting and rare imitative piece of a rare type. The size and weight is correct, but the piece exhibits very crude calligraphy. The piece seems to be made of good silver, so it is likely to be a jeweler's copy.
