Civic copper from Kandahar, similar to Valentine 67 (the obverse needs to be rotated about 45 degrees clockwise and shows the right handsword and a flower bud.

Best wishes

A good coin to add to Qandahar varieties!
Usually we find this design (leaf with sword on each side) associated with "Ahmadshahi" as mintname, here we have clearly "Qandahar".
I have noticed that afghan civic coppers may be gathered in 2 groups of weights : 7,5 - 10g and 3,5-5g for coins in circulation at same time and same place, may be they are full  and half "falus"?

Few weeks ago, on a thread started by Vic, I posted a coin with a word under "falus" that I intend to read as "nisf" = half :

I am not sure ...
