I always knew it as Adolph although I bet you are correct.

Why? Anyway, it's a pleasure to help people out, so thank you for giving me the opportunity.

I think there's a fair chance that by 1945, AW stood for Alexander (his middle name) Weinman. :)

I would suggest its an authorised pass for a crew member to leave the ship and return to it the next day.

@THCoins : That's a very nice Zahiri dirham.
Thanks for the kind word, yes, I maintain the blog but there are other contributors as well: fellow enthusiasts of medieval Indian and Islamic history and coins.

Iran and Afghanistan / Re: Iran Qajar Nasir ed-din Shah / Qiran Meshed mint AH1287

Those two big flat areas on the very last picture are weird. It may be die damage, but I wonder how or why? Two segments falling out of a die? Maybe not impossible, but it sounds improbable. The best I can think of is a die made of an alloy that was not mixed well enough. During striking, the die heated up and one metal expanded more than the other, causing slivers of metal to fall off. Very strange.

I rather think it is a removed mounting. I could be wrong of course...

Just in case, Vilnius is a lovely city, with good numismatic highlights (just search for Vilnius on this site) ranging from coin shops to museums, with more sights that can be covered with a day tour or a rented car.
