Afghanistan, Civic copper - Jalalabad mint, Flower design
« on: May 25, 2020, 10:06:01 PM »
I think the mint could be Ahmadshahi, again no concrete idea of what is pictured on it. Probably flowers.
Size: 21mm
Weight: 7.48gr

Dear maudry, the word in the bottom of the second photo is not " Ahmad أحمد ". It looks like " Kallad خلد " which is part of the common expression " Khalad Alla Mulkahu خلد الله ملكه " or just " Khallad Mulkahu خلد ملكه ".
I hope that helps.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

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