    Description

    Collection of Royal Afghan Types & Dates, this fascinating group of primarily silver types represents the coinage of the Kings of Afghanistan from 1890-1961, and consists of 50 coins ranging in grade from VG to UNC, but averaging a solid VF, and undamaged except as noted. Collections of this remote country's coins are few and far between, and this is the first that we have seen in many years. There is no local supply of collectable coins left in Afghanistan and catalog prices in the SCWC have remained unchanged for decades! The coins are as follows: KM802 Paisa 1309AH, KM810 Abbasi 1313, choice toned UNC, very scarce grade, KM812 1/2 Rupee 1313, KM825 1/2 Rupee 1316, scarce, KM806 Rupee 1308, 1309, 1310, 1311, KM813 Rupee 1313, KM814 Rupee 1313, KM818 Rupee 1314, scarce type, KM819.1 Rupee 1315, toned XF, KM819.2 Rupee 1316, KM26 5 Rupees 1316, huge silver coin, unusually bold VF, traces of mount removal along the edges, KM842.2 Rupee 1322, 1324, 1326, KM849 Paisa ND, KM852 Qiran 1334, very scarce date, KM853 Rupee 1329, 1330, 1331, 1333, 1334, SH Dating (Solar): KM875 1/2 Rupee 1298SH (1919), KM884 1/2 Rupee 1299, KM893 3 Shahis 1300, KM909 1/2 Afghani 1305/8, 1306/9, KM910 Afghani 1304/7, 1305/8, KM895 20 Paise 1347, scarce type, KM896 1/2 Rupee 1347, scarce type, KM897 Rupee 1347, mount trace, KMA922 Pul 1349, KM924 25 Pul 1349, two varieties, KM919 1/2 Afghani 1350/3, KM930 10 Pul 1314, KM926 1/2 Afghani 1312, KM932.2 1/2 Afghani 1313, KM937 3 Pul 1316, KM938 5 Pul 1316, KM939 10 Pul 1316, KM940 25 Pul 1316, KM945 25 Pul 1331, choice BU, scarce type, KM947 50 Pul 1331, KM953-955, 1-2-5 Afghanis 1340 (1961). Total current catalog value is approximately $450, but realistic retail is certainly higher. Sold as is, no return lot.
