Inscriptions on both sides: Fi al-tarikh (date off flan) / [Man]du. Thick square planchet. 14mmx14mm, 6.51 grams. "The Coins of the Indian Sultanates" -; Rajgor -.

This enigmatic type was probably issued in the period after the initial deposition of Baz Bahadur and the time when he regained the throne, or during some other even in these times when Malwa was overrun by the more powerful neighbours. Coins from this period from Ujjain are known, this is the first coin from Mandu I've seen. It seems to be unlisted in the standard catalogues.
