Iran, unlisted Falus of Bihbihan mint
« on: April 22, 2014, 04:26:30 PM »
I think this might be a scarce or rare coin, I had no idea it was Iran till Stan Goron identified it for me as the scales of justice are not what you would expect to find

Beautiful coin with full mintname  ::) , really not a common design for an iranian civic copper which copies EIC scales + 'adil..
A good find and no doubt a rare coin.
If I am not wrong, it is dated  1271 ?

It is dated 1271,  seems to be unlisted anywhere inc Bahram Alaeddini in his catalog of Iranian civic coppers so indeed a good find  ;D
