Inscriptions on both sides within square borders with ornaments at angles, and in all 4 margins. Dated to regnal year 28 = 1685/1686 AD. 23mm, 11.4 grams. Akbarabad mint, unpublished in Krause, Wright and Whitehead. SKU Q1-v7282

The word "Shah" n in the second line within the square on obverse is missing - the second line reads simply as "Alamgir", NOT "Shah Alamgir" as on all published coins. The coin is unlisted in all standard references, and I could not locate a similar one in any sales catalogues or specialized references. The coin seems to be completely unpublished.
