Comments In a recent paper to be published in Numismatic Chronicle, 2009, I have shown that the coins currently classified as belonging to the two different kings, Damaghsada II and Damajadasri I, were all issued by one king, whose name was Damazada.

The coins in the name of Damaghsada II are rare and very hard to find. This coin has a full legend, a decent portrait and a beautiful 11-ray sun on the reverse. An inexpensive way to fill a gap in your collection!
