Yehud. Ptolemy I (?). (Hellenistic period). Silver quarter obol. Young male head left / Ptolemaic style eagle with wings spread standing left; on left in paleo-Hebrew YHD (יהד).
TJC 29. AJC 14. Hendin 1078 (437).

This is the common way of writing YHD and this inscription occurs on many types of coins.
