Quote from: Overlord on October 24, 2009, 04:55:00 AMTo me the basic fabric seems to bear resemblance to the Dirhams struck by the 'Alawi Sharifs of Morocco. The year on the coin (in Arabic numerals) seems to be AH (11)88, which falls during the reign of Sidi Muhammad III (AH 1171-1204; 1757-1790 AD). I am not, however, certain at the moment and will have to investigate it further.
