Numismall: “These coins are attributed to ‘Umar I ibn Abd al-Aziz, the first of the Habbarid Amirs, who took control of Sindh with Caliphal approval in ca.854 CE but ruled as an independent Amir, functionally secceeding from the Caliphate. 'Umar minted silver dammas and exceedingly rare gold fractions dinars, but most of his coins are very worn and poorly struck.”
