This falus struck in the city of Balkh is somewhat curious with the two words "falus" and "Balkh" linked by their last letters : the loop of the "sin" of "falus is common with the loop of the end of "Balkh"

6,75g/ uncertain date(..7..?)

Don't know if there are any rules for Arab calligraphy, but in European logo-design, this would be OK, or even desirable. Nevertheless, I'll settle for an engraver who felt creative after a nice, relaxing day off. ;) I any case, a good fun acquisition for your collection.
