Iran, Civic copper of Abushar dated 1248 AH / jumping colt
« on: June 02, 2017, 09:37:35 AM »
12,46g
This coin struck at time of Fath 'Ali, showing a colt, seems to be unreported ?
Despite some corrosion dots, the mint name and date are legible : "zarb Abushir 1248"

Dear Saro, very nice coin, thank you for sharing. Mint name looks like " zarb Abushahr 1248 ضرب ابو شهر ۱۲۴۸ ".

Thank you Maythem, you are absolutely right, the correct name is "Abushahr", which is often occidentalized as "Bushir / Bushire / Abushir".... I made a mix in the title  ::)
