    Shah Shuja' al-Mulk silver 2 Rupees AH1218 Year 1 (1803) AU58 PCGS, Bahawalpur mint, KM254. One-year type, first reign. Hand-cut reeding. The strike well-placed on the flan with bright luster over the surfaces. A conservatively graded example that is rarely encountered as a type.

    Shah Shuja' al-Mulk took the throne after ousting his own brother as emir and, in a twist of fate, was ousted by that same brother some six years later. In 1839, with the help of the British, he would again take the throne only to be assassinated several years later by Shuja ud-Daula.
