Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

No holes, centrally struck, poetry, calligraphy. This coin makes me smile. It is an amazing foreigner in France.

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

Thank you Peter for your comment. Tahmasp II in AH 1145/1732 AD was deprived of his crown by Nadir in favour of the infant 'Abbas III, for whom Nadir acted as Regent. Four years later he abandoned his fiction, and had himself crowned as Nadir Shah. This marked the extinction of the Safavid dynasty.
