Reference
Comments For some reason, Western Kshatrapa coins come quite frequently as brockages, with the reverse being replaced by the "negative" impression of the obverse. Probably another coin was still sitting in the anvil (covering the reverse die) when this coin was struck. This coin looks to be from the mid-to-late 3rd century, about the time of Rudrasena II ... a particularly nice example.
