Umayyad: Anonymous (698-705 AD) AE Fals, NM, ND (Album-153; Walker-633)

This Kalima-type Fals is assumed to be minted in Syria around 698-705 AD (78-85 AH). Cross-referencing Walker, it is similar to Walker-631, but with a set of 3 annulets on the obverse and reverse.

Obv: Arabic legend in three lines within circle, لا إله إلا الله وحده (There is no god but Allah); three annulets in second outer circle with interval between
Rev: Arabic legend in three lines within circle, محمد رسول الله (Muhammad is the messenger of God); three annulets in second outer circle with interval between
