Yet another of the multitude of overstruck civic coppers of Afghanistan, this one has readable parts falus Kabul' and a date above , seems to be 1272 AH
The other side has what appears to be asword and an elongated leaf

Looks like a variety of this type dated 1234 AH. (yours : 1232 ?)
it seems that the "leaf" design has been overstruck on a "2 swords" host coin ?

Yes mine is 1232, not 1272, bits of various type visible inc a sword, even the leaf is partly overstruck
