Afghanistan,10 crude civic coppers
« on: May 05, 2013, 07:12:54 PM »
I picked these up dirt cheap but I can't think why  ;D ;D ;D ;D

They are so crudely struck by local village smiths, it's difficult to make out anything readable, multiple overstrikes on all of them by the look of it.  :o
But nevertheless interesting pieces of Afghan history

I also can not imagine why these are so cheap. They are all of the highest rarity !
This is the Haute Couture of coins, all made custom for the demands of the user. Only problem is that just as in vintage fashion, prices only go sky-high with the right label inside. And to label these specifically, that's a problem. So, we might just enjoy that there are still rare coins left with almost no commercial value  :D

I think they are far rarer than even highest rarity  8), the fact that I can't find any of them in KM  automatically makes them RRRR  ;D ;D ;D

There is a wonderful thread on the Kabul mint and its methods here.
