Comments The Awadh issues in the name of Shah Alam II use a frozen RY date of 26, but normally show the AH date on the obverse. Obviously, the frozen year coins must have been issued after Shah Alam's RY 26 (=AH 1198 = CE 1785). This coin is the version that does not show an AH date. It is an EXTREMELY RARE type ... so rare that Krause does not assign a value to it. Further, it is in SUPERB CONDITION.
