Type KA. Album 2240C, Diler 728, S.

Mithqal standard, shi'ite obverse with the names of the 12 imams added to the obverse field. Struck at Amul & Jurjan dated 738, and at amul 743-746. This type is most likely introduced after the local types of amul which are all dates 742 only. It is not known why so many examples of this type bore the frozen date 738, much more common than 743-746.
