Fals, Qaidu (668-701AH), Shash mint

It looks eaten by insects. If so, those insects must be fearsome. :)

However, what's left looks quite nice and I hope it's identifiable. This coin came with the unidentified coin here.

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

I think this is the right way up as Arabic legend is visible?  moon and stars visible may give a clue, should be identifiable by someone here

Chagatayid fals, the S-shaped tamgha is characteristic. I'll try and narrow it down later this evening.

You're quite right, Manzikert. Chagataid would have made me happy to begin with, but Shash makes it just perfect. Thank you!
