Here we have four one Para coins of Tripoli, KM list these as Copper but they appear more like a Brassy Bronze & I would think they are cast rather than struck as one appears broken

looking down from the top,

EDIT:   coin one is KM#111  Ah 1221/21

  Coins 2 &4 are KM#91.2 with dot in Zarb ( photo's in KM wrong way round)

coin 3 is KM#115 dated AH 1223, RY25

In my old KM (ANA Centennial Edition) the first picture shows KM #111.

Now found it in my more recent 2006 KM but the photo is very poor & I didn't spot it

The 3rd coin is missing in my collection. If it is to buy, please, send me a PM.
