Tahmasp II, Shahi, Tabriz, AH1143

We seem to only have Abbasi in the index for Tahmasp II -
this one is a Shahi (50 Dinars), Tabriz, AH1143 (1.3g)

It goes very nicely with this one

Thank you andyg, nice small Shahi to be added to the index. I expect the coin diameter to be 15 mm.

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

Very nice, sharp strike, with excellent detail and a superb addition to your collection. I would expect that a light acetone rub could enhance the upper part, leaving the lower part largely as is.
