Hotaki, Ashraf Shah, AH113x, AR abbasi
« on: August 04, 2019, 09:13:52 PM »
This one gets me completely confused.
I do neither manage to identify the ruler nor the mint.
The year is on the second image which is not very common. Looks like 113x which would reduce the list of rulers to Husayn I and Tahmasp Shah II.
The weight is not standard but could have been modified due to the removal of the mount?
Size: 25mm
Weight: 3.95gr

Dear maudry, I do not think that this coin belongs to the Safavid dynasty. May be Mughal?

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

Thank you Maythem,
I have made some research on zeno and found this one: Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Hotaki Afghan AR abbasi, Ashraf Shah, Qazwin
Looks not tooo bad a match.

Thank you Maythem.
Those on zeno are either Qazvin or most of the time Isfahan mint.
Mine looks to me like Isfahan.

Dear maudry, I am also in favor of " Isfahah اصفهان ", because there is letter " Sad ص " following immediately letters " Zar ضر " of the word " Zarb ضرب ".
