Another ruler of Nalapura(Narwar). Ruler is Asaladeva (AD.1255-1297). (referring to this coin of Malayavarman https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...n-Narwar.jpg posted earlier)

This belongs to type three, legend and horseman.Horseman is extremely degenerated and is visible only to imagination!On the first image, the back of the horse can be seen with three dots inside and the tail at its top!!.

On fig.No.003, the letter "A" and last letter "va" are off flan. Other parts of the script are visible. Some collectors attribute this to Somaladevi of Ajmer. But the legend and horseman style, weight, the ladder-like horizontal image above the legend (faintly visible on coin no.006) and presence of date below these ones conform with similar issues of Malayadeva of Narwar (Nalapura). Somaladevi coins are more like Ajayapala issues with goddess on one side and legend on the other.

Hello I read all previous posting with great interest. The knowledge shared by drnsreedhar is amazing. I was wondering if you all could shed some light on these coins.The first one is 2.3gms and the other one is 3.1gm. From what I read in the previous posts, appears to be from Kangra dynasty.
Cannot place the ruler. Thanks

Welcome Subho to CCF and thanks for the post.
Both of your coins are Kangra issues. First coin is of Apurva chandradeva. "Sri A pu" is visible above the hump of the bull. The other coin cannot be precisely attributed because ruler's name is not there. On this one, the legend above bull is "Sri samanta", "deva" falling off-flan.
Another specimen of your first coin is demoed in page 4 of this thread. But the letter"pu" is written slightly differently. Both variety of script is known to exist.

Hello once again. Need help in identifying the bull and hose coin below. I can read the text around bull as "MA Sa da la "but cannot attribute to a ruler with my limited knowledge. I also find " sri "or sa" behind the horseman It is a billon coin. Weight 3. 3 gms .

Dear Subho

The coin is an issue of Shamsuddin Iltutmash, the Mamluq Delhi Sultan.Full legend above the bull is "sri suritana samasadina". On the reverse there is horseman and "sri hamira" above.

I have a coin that is (heavily cleaned) debased silver that seems to have some of the markers for a bull and horseman coin, a variety 1 coin according to the first post.

A few of the designs of the bull look similar to the coins posted in this thread, but to me the script seems to be different.

Any thoughts?

Dear allranger
The left image has a stylised couchant bull facing left and "sri samantha deva" above in Sarada script. Other side has a warrior with a vertically held lance, mounted on a stylised horse passant to the right. What is written above the horseman is important in attribution.

Okay, good to know. I'll be a bit more discriminating in which coins I pick up in the future. I saw script above the bulls hump and thought that it might be enough to identity. I assume that given the unattributable nature of the coin it greatly reduces its value?
