Afghanistan generally uses SH and not AH.
There is a difference

Afghanistan with no doubt .
I think that with a slight rotation "Ka" of Kabul is present ?
On reverse there is someting between the two swords, an ornament ?
I wonder ifthe date couldn't be 1267 ?
This coin seems to be very close to Valentine n°52 / p.169
