SHAYBANID: 'Abd Allah II, 1583-1598, AV 1/12 mohur, [Badakhshan], DM, A-2994, obverse in quatrefoil, pointed left & right, bold strike, ANACS graded EF45. The 1/12 mohur, formerly classified as ¼ mithqal, was almost certainly struck solely at Badakhshan, though the mint name almost never appears on the coin. The full and half mithqals were struck only at Mashhad & Herat. This denomination is consistently too heavy to be viewed as a ¼ ashrafi (about 0.86g), too light be be ¼ mithqal (1.16g). On the other hand, one twelfth of a full-weight mohur of contemporary Mughal Akbar, about 11.02g, would be about 0.918g, perfect for this denomination, and almost identical to 1/5 of a mithqal (0.93g). Earlier coins of this denomination were struck by the Mughal emperors Humayun and Akbar from the 950s until 987, albeit with variable weight.
