Comments
Sher Shah was a brilliant general and also a brilliant administrator. He drove the Mughal emperor Humayun from India and re-established the Delhi Sultanate. Among his many civil reforms was the introduction of the rupee, which continues as the Indian monetary unit to this day.
 
This coin bears a date of 945, unrecorded by Goron & Goenka, who report dates 946-949. RARE thus!
