Excellent coin! The mintname here is : "Qom" showing a lion seizing a gazelle.
It seems that there is a date (at 10 o'clock, after the mintname) : "4" (followed may be 6)   ??? : 1146 ?
Coins from this mint are not common.

These 2 last coins are civic copper from Isfahan (of same type), the mint name is well legible on the 1st. No date it seems.

from bottom to up : "falus Isfahan / zarb" , the apparent difference from each other is only due to centrage when struck.
