Comments
This coin was struck in Akhtarnagar Awadh (probably a re-named Lucknow) under the auspices of the Nawab of Awadh, Sa'adat Khan. LOVELY specimen with beautiful toning and great eye appeal.
 
From the collection of Alan DeShazo, the noted numismatist and author of several papers on Islamic coins. A very pleasing example with full details.
