And with a very clear legend ! I can not show one to accompany this one, for i have not yet encountered one in real live.

Still working on catalogueing the Jitals series. Found myself a nice specimen to fill a small gap.

Nice, I've still not found one although even with Umar is clearly visible I would think such coins could easily be overlooked with a casual glance
