Comments
The coins of the Amirs of Sind are some of the earliest Islamic coins from India.
 
CHOICE example of a RARE type. The coin came with a group of coins of the Yashaaditya series and may have been found with them.
 
An example of this type, not as nice as this coin, sold for $214 at a Stephen Album auction in January 2019. Link: Lot 1401
