Description

    Kings of Afghanistan Collection, twenty-five examples dating from 1891-1961, primarily silver with grades ranging from Fine to Choice UNC and averaging a solid VF.

The prices listed in the SCWC have been outdated for some time. This group includes: KM801.1 Copper Paisa 130(9)AH, thinner variety compared with KM802 and 21mm, very scarce, KM810 Abbasi 1313 date above tughra, Choice toned UNC, rare grade for this era, KM825 Qiran or 1/2 Rupee 1316, scarce type, KM806 Rupee 1308, KM813 Rupee 1313, KM814 Rupee 1313, KM818 Rupee 1314, scarce type, KM842.2 Rupee 1322 and 1324 (2), KM851 Abbasi 1334, scarce denomination, KM853 Rupee 1330 and 1333, Solar Dating (SH): KM884 1/2 Rupee 1299, KM885 Rupee 1299, KM910 Afghani 1304/7 and 1305/8, KM920 1/2 Afghani 1350AH, KM926 1/2 Afghani 1312, KM932.2 1/2 Afghani 1313, KM936 2 Pul 1316, KM938 5 Pul 1316, KM945 25 Pul 1331, Choice BU and very scarce, and KM953 Afghani 1340, two pieces.
