The countermark is 'raiz' which I understand means 'good' or 'current'.

These are sometimes dated and I see a suggestion of this (a date ending in '8?') on yours.

I also see a number, but didn't turn the countermark around. My best guess is 725.

Oddball option: in Arab numerology, the letters forming "Allah" can be transformed into a number. I forgot how and which number.

Only the last words of the mintname are legible but no doubt it's "Kermanshahan"
For me, the date under "Raij" on the counterstamp could be "1038"  ???

"Allah" gives 97 in Abjad system
