Most excellent addition to the index. The coin is part of the slow-motion falling apart of the empire that Genghis built. This is how we keep learning while having fun.

Good to put this in the spotlight ! A dynasty i did not really know, but now added to the index.
It seems that several shortlived dynasties held control of the area for just a short while with the decline of Ilkhan supremacy.

Dear Vic, the mint could be " Isfahan اصفهان " because of the letter " N ن " at the bottom of first photo. The date is 74x as shown in the margin of first photo " Arbaeen  اربعین " (Forty) at 7 O'clock and " Sab'a mi'a سبعمئه " (Seven hundred) at 4 O'clock.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
