Hi,

Please correct me if I am wrong. I think that it is a silver Jital - Kabul Shahi Dynasties (Hindu Shahi kings), Shahi of Ohind - Sri Samanta Deva - 850-1000 AD - Ohind Mint.

Tye# 14.1

Type: Bull & Horseman

Weight: 3 g
Diameter: 21,8 mm

Obverse: Bull sitting to Left. Nagari Legend Above, "Sri Samanta Deva"
Reverse:  Horseman to right holding banner. Nagari "Di" on top

Here is the reference, that I found: bh

Thanks a lot,
Alexander

Based on the style and the lumpyness of the flan i'd rather say this is an anonymous post-shahi type Tye#32.

One from another topic is much smaller and thicker. This one looks like a silver coin compared to a copper one (possibly Billon).

Could it be the same coin?

Based on the copperyness, the last one more likely becomes a Tye#33, while the former is a Tye#32

Thanks a lot! So basically it is two variations of the same coin. When I've had a swap the first one was declared as Shahi of Ohind and the second one as Tomaras of Delhi.
