Comments Huvishka's coppers come with three different obverses: the elephant-rider, the couch-recliner, and the cross-legged, and with numerous reverse deities.

The early, heavy weight coins, are all quite scarce. On this coin, although the legend MAO is not visible, the shoulder crescent gives assurance that Mao is indeed the deity representede.
