Comments Hamzah Shah ruled for a brief period, and, as a consequence, his coins are scarce to rare. In all probability, he was a puppet king, with real power resting in the hands of Raja Ganesh. No specimen of this coin type has ever had a legible marginal legend; it is attributed to Mu'azzamabad on the basis of its style. Goron & Goenka classify this coin, which was not listed by Rajgor, as RR: "Very Rare. Seldom available; collectors may have to wait years to locate one."
