By very far the best civic copper from Qandahar I have ever seen. KM has a note saying the types catalogued are representative and many more exist. I believe them :)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

KM have used a lot of the coin drawings from Valentines book which is still outstanding even after all these years & a good many of those coins have never been rediscovered & are not known today. I wonder what happened to Valentines collection when he died?

The British Museum bought most of it.

That's probably why they are not known today & must be rarely viewed by the public
