AR Jital

Medieval Coins | user_94464

     Today, I purchased an AR Jital, my first medieval, and Islamic! The coin is 99 percent silver. The Urdu* on the observe and reserve is clear, and the planchet is in good condition (flip says VF). The coin was made from 725-752 and 1325-1351 and is a Delhi mint. For those of you not familiar with this coin, it is an Islamic small currency silver coin from India. I paid $ 30 for this coin, was this a good deal?

Thanks,
             Bryce

The image is upside down. However, I have found the reference: Goron & Goenka, Coins of Indian Sultanate: The obverse reads Zarb fi Zaman Al Abd al Raji Rahmat Allah Muhammad bin The Reverse reads Al sultan Al Said Al Shahid Tughluq Shah and date is written in words Similar coin here https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?term=tughluq+jital&category=1-2&en=1&de=1&fr=1&it=1&es=1&ot=1&images=1¤cy=usd&thesaurus=1&order=0&company=

1) Urdu was invented in India and the script is not urdu but Arabic. 2) Muhammad Bin Tughluq's period falls in Medieval period and not ancient 3) 725-752 is AH Date (Anno Hijri) while 1325-1351 is AD date (Anno Domini) 4) Pl post clear pictures of obverse and reverse I will decipher that for you
