Wondering if this is a civic issue or part of a national series. See this coin from the same mint and period for perspective.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I think the difference is that civic coppers are anonymous, the other coin has legends on both sides & the rulers name is given whereas this one only has zarb falus Ahmadshahi
