Qajar, Fath 'Ali Shah, 1244 AH, AR Qiran (Kran), Dar al-Dawla Kermanshahan mint (1212-1250 AH)(1797-1834 AD)
Weight: 6.77 gm
Diameter: 18 mm
Metal: Silver
Obverse, inside a decorated circle written in Farsi: سکه فتحعلی شه خسرو صاحبقران , Fath ‘Ali Shah Qajar Khusro Sahipqiran, meaning: “Fath ‘Ali Shah Qajar, Caesar, Sahibqiran (i.e. Possessor of an auspicious conjunction)”.
Reverse: Mint place and date inside decorated circle: ضرب دارالدوله كرمنشهان  , meaning struck at abode of the state Kermanshahan. The date “ 1244 ۱۲۴۴ “ is visible at the bottom below the letter “ B ب  “ of the word “ Zarb ضرب “.
It took me some time to decide on the mint place of this coin. I have posted a similar coin on July 21, 2016:

I like clear dates! At least I know the figures...

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

Thank you Peter, not only the date is clear but the space allocated to the date is good for this type of coin.
