Bengal Presidency Mohur, Patna.

India, British India, East India Company, Gold Mohur, Patna 1795-96, normal toothed border, sikka zad bar haft kishwar saya fazl ilah hami din muhammad shah alam Badshah 1202, rev. zarb murshidabad sanah 19 julus maimanat manus, 12.36g (Stevens 2017, 5.29). Extremely fine and very rare.

Secret privy marks were added to dies of Murshidabad for coins struck at Dacca and Patna though Paul Stevens has revised, and reversed, Pridmore's attribution of which is which. Both experts agree that the additional small dot, in the third circle of dots, attributes the coins to one of these rare mints and Paul Stevens's more recent research has re-identified that mint as Patna.

The legends translate as "Defender of the religion of Muhammad, Shah Alam Emperor, Shadow of the divine favour, put his stamp on the seven climes, 1202 / Murshidabad in the 19th year of his reign of tranquil prosperity."
