Brass, Arabic, 21.5mm
« on: January 10, 2017, 11:26:04 PM »
Any ideas on this one please ?

Brass, Arabic, 21.5mm, thinner than a British 1 Penny piece.

The other side is not exactly flat/smooth - but there it does not seem that there has ever been any design on it.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

from top, I think that there is  : "Bilal / Muhammad / be-shar'a / al-Mus (?) / Bilal Muhammad in street al-Mas"

A suggestion : may be a merchant token from Cairo ? in the old well known al-Moez street  ???
