Note: In 1774, Awadh took over Najibabad, a Rohilla mint. In 1801 it passed to the British (AH 1216-1217). It has been established by Prinsep that Najibabad's operations ceased with the rupees of Shah Alam II's RY 43. These rupees with later dates and the Rohilla Katar mintmark were struck elsewhere. A reference is made to an old rupee struck by Rani Sookum in 47, called the "Old Jagadhree". Coins found together are all of the same styles.
