Morocco Alawi dynasty 1/2 dirham of Moulay 'Abd al-Rahman

Hi,
I got those two in the same lot.
Size is around 15mm and weight 1.34 and 1.32gr
That's about all I can say.

Thanks,
That's indeed an option.
Year could also be (1)183

Morocco Alawi dynasty
Both coins are half dirham of Moulay 'Abd al-Rahman, I think; the mint is : "Hazrat Fez" and they are dated " 'am عام / (year)" :  (12)63 & 68 AH
The upper coin shows quite clearly the mintname and the lower scan needs a 180 rotation to read a part of "Hazrat"

Thank you very much.
At least I managed to be coherent on the id of these coins, I was wrong on origin, date and orientation  8)

Pretty brilliant, saro! Now that I know where to look, I can see 263 and 268. Don't be discouraged, maudry. Andyg and saro are champions in their league, but they got there step by step, not with one big leap.
