Civic copper with sunfaceof Ganja dated12xx
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:25:14 PM »
This is a small and pretty civic copper with a sun face, dated 12xx AH ( could be well1216 ?) / 2,55g / 16 - 18mm
I obtained it recently (unidentified by the seller); once again,  the mintname is not easy to identify and could be a pleasant reading exercise ...

Nice coin Saro, the mint is " Zarb Ganja  ضرب گنجه "  (Azerbaijan).

I was just looking in Valentine trying to spot the mint and could only guess at Lahijan when the above post appeared so I looked up Ganja and it's listed under Caucasia in Valentine
