The latest addition is an upgraded Elizabeth I Shilling with much more meat of a portrait left than my old one.

Tracy,

I am very happy to "indulge" you with your "research project." Thank you for the assistance.

I had noticed the absence on any of the websites of any Kushro II drachms bearing the H mint abbreviation, but chalked that up to the randomness of hoard finds. After looking at some of the coin links that you found, I am reverting back to my initial interpretation of the mint abbreviation as WH = Veh-Ardashir.

In light of Daryaee, I have also narrowed the range of possible years of issue.

I have incorporated your information into my attribution of the coin in my gallery: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-150961
As you can see, I gave you credit for your assistance in attributing the coin, with a link to this discussion. If you find the time to further research the date signature I will again update the attribution in my gallery.

Sasanian numismatics can be more challenging for the uninitiated than many other areas of ancient/medieval coin collecting.

Stkp

I read IMP CAESAR - VES[PASIANVS] AVG.

The proper obv. legends for this type on official denarii were

IMP CAES VESP AVG P M (RIC 43) or

IMP CAES VESP AVG P M COS IIII (RIC 356).

Hi to everyone! I got this fourree denarius some days ago. The thing that I really find interesting is that on the observe of the coin the inscription, at least what has left of it, seams like the letters are completely wrong, they don't even seam Latin. What this really mean for a fourree? Could it be the fact that it was struck by barbarians or illiterate people or I miss something? I want as many ideas as possible from you guys as it really excites! Thank you all in advance for you answers.
