Patience is one of the virtues of the real collector  ;)
In my experience i alway encounter the most interesting coins when i am not looking for them. They'll come by you sooner or later !

How true that is.

"Sri Mananka" Type and "Pashupati" Type.
The first coin ("Sri Mananka") to be magnetic (AE / iron alloy).

These coins seldom a good quality.

In my experience "Pashupati" Type is very common

"Sri Mananka" Type is quite common

But the first coin (Guna) is very rare

I would have fears about the very first specimen pictured in the thread, unless bought for a high price from a good source

....... Please help me to read legends/attribute ruler and period.

1. "Sri Mananka" Type coins were issued AD 576-605 during the reign of Sivadeva I.
Obv. Legend "Sri Mananka".
Rev. Legend "Sri Bhogini".
RGV#6

Amshuvarman was probably responsible for the issue, and chose the designs to honour the revered ancestors of the king, Manadeva and his gueen Bhogini.

2. "Pashupati" Type coins were issued AD 641-680 during the reign of Narendradeva.
Rev. Legend "Pasupatih".
RGV#98
R.N.Pandey points out that is much evidence in the inscriptions of the devotion of Narendradeva to Lord Pashupatinath.
