It's a civic copper of Isfahan dated   122x AH,  the date is written with inverted digits (mirror image), as  x661 isn't possible, that should be 122x   (the left digit could be an inverted "4" ?  so,  "124x" is possible)

No, it isn't usual on iranian coppers and that gives a special interest to your coin which is finally dated 1240 as you can see on a mirror image of your coin : all digits are now clearly legible (even if my picture isn't of high grade...).
