Iran, civic copper of Tabriz dated 1224 AH / lion & sun

7,45g / 1224 AH
The flan is wider than the die, which is somewhat uncommon and gives the full mintname.
This coin has been overstamped and the reverse shows a sun face with few remains of sunrays (notice the flower ornament under "Tabriz").

Nice, the depiction of the Lion is a bit different to usual as well, very elongated and looking a bit starved  :o
