Napki Malka type, ca. AD 475 - 576

Denomination : Billon dirhem.  Mint : Kabul valley and Zabul

Reference : Mitchiner Ancient - 1507 to 1509. 

Size : 29.3 x 31.0 mm. Weight : 3.04 grams.

Grade : XF with the weak reverse typical of this issue.  Good silvery appearance.

Obverse : Head of the King right, in Sassanian style, with a Pahlvi inscription reading NAPKI MaLKa to the right, and a mint control mark behind.

Reverse : Sassanian style fire altar and attendants, but crudely engraved and crudely struck (as is normal for the issue).

This is very nice for a Hephthalite issue.
