Silver coin - Hammered Dump coin - Rupee - (AH 1200, AD 1785) - reign of Mughal Emperor Shah Alam II but probably minted by Governors or Independent Indian princely states. Have not been able to figure out mint of issue and other details despite many years of research on my own incl referring to Standard Catalog of World Coins by Krause and Mishler. Sorry, the pix is not in actual size but they do highlight the details. Approx 13- 15 mm dia and 5-6 mm thickness. Sorry no info on weight.

 

I would be grateful if could give any additional info on the Silver coin.

A reply will be highly solicited.

 

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

dmitra99

@dmitra99 I can't be of much help but I can read Arabic numerals and it looks like you got the date wrong. The year in AH read 1255 and not 1200, which means if its a Mughal coin then it from the reign of Bahadur Shah II

I stand corrected, Rony. It is indeed AH 1255 (AD 1840)... reign of the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah II Zafar. 

Could you please post the image to the site as Sekhar Kaushik suggested.

Thanks,
