Comments
This is an example of Husain's so-called fourth victory type, in which he proclaims his victories over Kamru, Kamta, Jajnagar and Orissa.
 
The attribution to Sharifabad is uncertain, Dar al-Darb has also been suggested. But there is a hint of the word Sharifabad and the style agrees with the coin illustrated by Goron & Goenka. Sharifabad coins are RRR.
