Afghanistan, AE Falus, Kabul, AH 1214, I think this would be in the reign of Shah Zaman

KM only list one date ( AH 1213)  for this type

I think this is one of those coins which show a remarkable mixture between refinement and crudeness. Thanks for showing !

I have a fondness for these Afghan coins, at least this one is not repeatedly overstruck as so many of them seem to be

Could it be that the piece illustrated in KM is actually also dated 1214?

To my knowledge, these issues were valid for one year only (which explains the many overstrikes.)

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

possibly, the photo is not very clear to be sure &  KM is rather unrelable for accuracy when it comes to listng dates
