Iran,anonymous Falus, Lion & Sun type, Mashad mint

I can't fathom out the mint on this one, apart from the word falus at the bottom I'm stumped.  6.84g

The 1st coin reads :"falus zarb Mashhad" with "zarb" at top, not easily legible.. (Alaedini p. 23 / 6,52g)
and, yes, your 2nd coin, except for the lion facing opposite, is similar to Val.66 (it is Alaedini p.24 / 1259 AH -5,5g) :"falus Maqdas Mashhad" (without "zarb")
