Dear maudry, your coin details:
Afsharids, Shah Rukh, 1161 AH, AR Rupi (10-Shahi), Mashhad mint (1161-1210 AH)(1748-1796 AD)
Weight 11.04 gm
Diameter 23 mm
Metal Silver
Obverse: in Farsi reads “ یا علی ابن موسی الرضا “, Ya ‘Ali Ibn-e Musa al-Reza. The mint is at the bottom “ Zarb Mashhad ضرب مشهد “ below legend. The date “ 1161 ۱۱۶۱ “ is below the word “ Mashhad مشهد “.
Reverse: Shiite formula (Kalima) ” لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله علی ولی الله ”, La illah l’Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, ‘Ali Wali Allah, meaning, “ no God but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God, ‘Ali is the chosen one of God ”.
Attached is what Saro previously posted regarding similar coin posted by maudry on June 29, 2017:,39467.msg254661.html#msg254661

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

Thank you Maythem,
I should have had a closer look to the coins of my collection before posting this coin.
But now I have one these with and one without CM.
