MUGHAL: Jahangir, 1605-1628, AV square heavy mohur, Lahore, AH1015 year 2, KM-184.1, BMC-293 (1015 year 1) & 294 (1016 year 3), special presentation type from the early part of Jahangir's reign, obverse legend his full name & patronymic shah nur al-din jahangir ebn akbar padshah, and the regnal year "2"; reverse legend ruy-e zar-ra sakht nurani be-rang-e mehr o mah, "he made the face of money to shine with hues of the sun and moon", and the mint formula zarb lahore, NGC graded AU55.

Remarkably nice example, with no testmarks on edge, and with nearly all of the outer margins visible. Both round and square heavy mohurs were struck during the first 6 years of his reign, replaced by standard weight rupees and mohurs during year 6. This example is nicer than the four examples cited on CoinArchives.
