Iran, copper coin with lion holding a sword, dated 1283 AH
« on: January 03, 2017, 04:25:37 PM »
8,48g / 24mm / 1283 AH
These coins are difficult to find in good grade; this one shows a sharp and fully legible legend : "  فلوس رایخ ممالک محرو سه ایران  "
there is no mint name but :"falus current in the protected lands (of) Iran" : a coin with the Shah's emblem, struck for use in the whole country; (it was worth 50 dinars / 1 shahi)

Another beauty saro,  has it got a crude milling to the edge?  I posted one today and it looks like the milling is hand cut

Some irregular vertical streaks are visible on a part of the edge, it seems to me that they could be a result of striking  ???

On mine they appear as deliberate straight cuts all the way round

By curiosity, I tried to reconstitute the full legend of this coin with its elegant calligraphy and a letter "A / alif " is missing : 3 are needed and I see only two... may be I am wrong  ???
Could anyone try ?  a good indoor game  ;)
