Reference : Mitchiner Ancient - 1507 to 1509.  G-200

Size : 29.8 x 30.6 mm.  Weight : 3.13 grams.

Grade : XF with a nice strike for the issue.  Subdued silvery-grey 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.
