These are the first coins in Arabic script I could decipher completely (apart from the toughra, of course) with Plant in hand. I felt good about that, realized I still had a long way to go and not enough time to practice. We are fortunate to have the likes of Oesho and Overlord wandering around here.

I have always taken the two devices above the mintmark as quivers, but now that I see them up close and considering the times, that seems unlikely. What would they be?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
