If my memory do not fail, piedforts before the metric system were on a duodecimal basis, 6 or perhaps sometimes 3 or 12 times normal weight. Should this one be on a basis of 6 ?

I agree with the density, the previous question remained overweight almost 5 times ...

"Charles IV piedfort" on Google gives a result dating from 1322-1328, very beautiful and with a photo.

I did not read carefully enough Figleaf's message.
Piedforts for at least Philippe VI and Jean II do exist.

Dear Maudry,
I can be wrong but I don't think that it could be a coin of Ghazni.
However, I guess that's a falus of the same area...
With reserve, I think that the legend could be read : " فلوس بلپدت کابل " (falus of the great city of Kabul)
(baldat "بلد ة" is also written "بلپدت ")

Anyway you have to be careful with density as billon may be made with any ratio of silver,  including almost zero.

USA / Re: The purpose of this token?

It does look as though the value was applied later, it probably started life as a valueless sample then was counter-marked with a value for use by someone later.
Agreed, the counterstamp was added later. If the token were generic, then any value could be added to it by the issuer.
