Comments It is interesting to see how the Persian legend on the reverse of Malhar Rao's coinage has been shunted aside; pride of place is given to the Nagari  letters identifying the king, the scimitar, and the AH date, which has migrated to the reverse.

Malhar Rao's copper coinage continued featuring the shaded ball or circle seen on the late coins of Sayaji Rao II.
