Egypt 10 Milliemes KM# 381
« on: April 06, 2019, 03:01:01 PM »
Dear gentlemen,

There are obviously two letters (it looks like I.Е) on the obverse of Egypt 10 Milliemes KM# 381. Do you know what could it be and what does it mean?

Here is the coin: 10 Milliemes Egypt 1955-1958, KM# 381 | CoinBrothers Catalog

Also, could you please, write it down in Arabic, so I'll be able to copy it to the obverse description.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best regards,
Alexander

I would say they are the Arabic capitals 'ain and alef. Presumably the initials of the designer.

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

My guess is those are designers initials, but I could be wrong.

More guesswork here. :)
