Are you trying to corner the market for Yazd coins? A week ago, I would have taken the animal for some kind of cat, but now, I am considering that it could be a monkey in a tree...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Not really, Peter!  :) it was only by chance that I found  few (misidentified ) coins which further appeared to belong to this mint; like the "Ugly Duckling", nobody paid attention to them.. ::)
