Lot of 3 authentic nicer copper drachms of various types, showing a standing King on obverse and various Kushan deities on the reverse. Very decent condition for these coins, without duplication (the deities on the reverse should be all different). Interesting research group. Each coin is around 17mm and 4 grams. The price is for the entire group of 3 coins shown on the picture, not per coin.

Kushan drachms were a scarcer denomination, less common that the tetradrachms.
