Comments

Kuchaman coins are without exception dated with the fictitious date AH1203/Ry.31. The Kuchaman rupee in the name of Shah Alam II is an exact copy of the Maratha issue of Ajmer, except that a small sword is added over the 'he'of Badshah. The silver rupee was known as the Iktis'anda (= of the 31st year).
The minting at Kuchaman started much later than the date on the coin - Jan Lingen

Weight varies: 10.5-10.9 grams.
