Small metal objects, and especially coins, from the excavations of Tapa Sardar disappeared from the storerooms in Ghazni during the years of the civil war.

However, the MAIA had preserved at the Centro Scavi of IsMEO/IsIAO in Rome the casts of the coins, which are presently being studied by Michael Alram, Director of the Coin Collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.
