A large percentage of the Afghan civic coppers are of course overstruck on earlier issues, sometimes several times, but here are two more overstruck on 'foreign' coins:

1880 Kandhar issue (Valentine 91) overstruck on 1877 falus of Kalat (Valentine 6-11).
c.1890(?) Kandahar issue overstruck on 1858 East India Company 1/4 anna

Here’s an ancient overstrike of mine with an interesting backstory:

It's not a new thing then. :) Thanks Bob, for both the coin and back story.

I mentioned I had some of these overstrikes from Sweden - here they are. All are 1 öre kopparmynt from Ulrika Eleonora or Fredrik's reigns, overstruck on emergency dalers of the 1718-1720 period.

9267: Ulrika Eleonora 1 öre KM (KM 364.2) on daler "Flink och Färdig" (KM 356)
9850: another on daler "Saturnus" (KM 358)
9266: another on daler "Jupiter" (KM 357)
9268: another on daler "Mars" (KM 360)
7709: Fredrik 1 öre KM (KM 383.1) on daler "Hoppet" (KM 369)
8884: another on daler "Wett och Wapen" (KM 355)

I can see the second one Alan, it's very clear. I have no idea what I'm looking at on the first.  ;D

Russia again - 10 Kopeks 1762 over 5 Kopeks (1758-1762)

Thanks, some nice ones. :) I am struggling to see the host coin on the Russian ones though, I'm not really sure where I'm looking.  :-\

The undertype is a crudely struck piece on copper sheet, with just the inscriptions 'Muhammad Khan' and 'Fulus struck in Kalat', see first coin below.

The overtype has the peacock left in the loop of 'Kandahar' with the reverse 'fulus' in a lobed lozenge, see the second coin (which is itself actually overstruck on an earlier Afghan copper).

That's nice Afrasi, and to be able to identify the host coin to date level. The African coin must have been pretty special...

It was. Coins without pictures in the KM are usually no so often at the market. Interestingly it is also an overstrike:

Angola 2 Makuta 1815 struck over 1 Macuta (KM # 40)

Thank you. I particularly like the last couple. Are these common?
