I'm not exactly sure, but on searching for 'mussal', I found this and then decided that perhaps I'd looked far enough.

Trust an AC/DC numismatist to be looking for something like that!

I imagine "mussal" is probably just a misspelling of mussel, the sea food creature.

How about an Arabic first name? Mussa?

Not so.

I believe there is an Indian connection.

The first reply anyone ever gives to such questions on translation forums is "can we have some context, please?"

Where does the word occur, in what subject area, and can we see it in a sentence/paragraph as you saw it?

That would help to pin it down.

Well a CD Numismatist, but I'm dialectic, so I got the letters mixed up.  :P
