DURRANI: Kohandil Khan, 1840-1855, Qandahari rupee, Ahmadshahi mint

The Qandahari rupee was noted by several European visitors as
equal to 10/17 of the Kabuli rupee, though a relationship of
approximately 10/16.5 is more likely, assuming that the two mints
maintained identical fineness. It is also equivalent to precisely
half the traditional Mughal rupee of 11.52g.779

Coins dated 1266-1271 are rare.
