Delhi Tughlak coins

I have some old Delhi Sultanate coins issued by the Tughlak sultans.

This coin was issued by Muhammad Bin Tughlak during 1325AD-1351AD. It is of denomination “One Paika”. It can be found in the coins catalog at Sr No D394.

In March 2013, I obtained another piece of this coin.

This coin is known to be the “Rabbi Hasabi” type.
