Reference KM 723 (unlisted date)
Comments KM lists only year 31 for this issue, and that is already a scarce coin. This coin, with the unlisted date RY 5 is presumably very rare, possibly unique.

It is possible that this coin is still an official Mughal issue, coming as it does from the early years of Shah Alam's reign. Alamgir II and Shah Jahan III had issued coins from Surat, and it is not entirely clear at what point the issues from this mint cease to be official Mughal issues.
