on the reverse of your 2nd coin (third photo). Would be much easier if you could get the inscriptions a bit better in focus -- the letters are in good condition and the date would be clear. Very nice coins!
i will make more pictures, because i have a couple of other coins whit arabic inscription. With my digital camera its hard to make a good picture, and BTW did you managed to check the second abbasid coin? and the last coin i posted.
It is certainly a very pretty coin. Unfortunately, I don't know much about prices, others here would know better. Since you have so many old and interesting Islamic coins, do you own a copy of Richard Plant's Arabic coins And How to Read Them? If not, it's a great book, it is easy to find online, and it has helped me to learn to read Kufic script and other details.
I will look again at the other Abbasid coin, but I think it was very low contrast, and too blurry to make much out. The last coin here I don't recognize at all, but with a better photograph I might be able to read it. But please include both sides of the coin . I find digital cameras very difficult to use myself.
The Indian coin is from the kingdom of Jaunpur (796-881/1394-1476) and is a coin of Hussain (863-881/1458-76). The back reads "Hussain Shah (son of) Mahmud Shah (son of) Ibrahim Shah". If you get Richard Plant's book, it is illustrated on page 71. I like the stylized writing on these coins.
