Title: Iran 50 Dinars 1316 & 1346 SH (KM.1156)
Post by: Prosit on November 13, 2012, 01:04:42 AM
I believe I have identified the one on the right as Iran 50 Dinars
KM # 1142, Diameter 20mm, weight 3.41g and dated 1316 (1937).

The one on the left I am not so sure of.  Same design, same diameter but it is thinner weighing 2.61g
The date is different numerals but kinda looks like 1347 to me (1968) in Persian rather than arabic numerals.
That would make it KM # 1156.

Does it look like I got that correct?

Perfect Dale. Congratulations for getting both the Persian 4 and the Persian 6 right. Branching out into Persian numerals?

Thanks! I do want to understand them and have made good progress. Israel's numerals are still frustrating but I am making progress there too.
