Amazing you could get anything out of this, Maudry. It looks like an overstruck chaotic piece of jumbled confusion to me. How did you conclude Kabul?

Thank you Peter,
I may be wrong though, but with these leaves there are not many possibilities and I believe the "inverted R" stands for Kabul.

Yes, it is likely a falus of Kabul from which a similar "3 leaves" design exists.
With a 90° rotation, I see a flower which gives a coin with 2 reverses ( :D) and consequently no script...
