Afghanistan, falus Ahmadshahi (with 2 swords)
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:06:00 PM »
Maybe?  This one 13.6g. Seems dated 1219.

I have an idea I posted this before - if so apologies (can't find it in the search if I did)

Seen the two swords on Afghan coins before. Don't like the blueish stuff at 10 o'clock. Bronze rot, maybe?

Please notice this fast reply :D ....
In fact, it's to give a label before I put this coin posted more than 3 1/2 years ago, in the Afghanistan index...

The mintname is "Ahmadshahi" (Qandahar) / reverse: a floral design with 2 swords.
The reverse needs a 180° rotation and is very similar to Valentine n°33 & obverse close to n°31 (p.175 of "Modern Copper coins of Muhammadan States")
