Iran,Civic copper Coin, Lion facing left, calligraphy mostly damaged & wiped. It's really shocking that such a beautiful coin was damaged....

increasingly challenging !
The only clear word is "zarb", which doesn't help very much... nevertheless, it seems to me that at left we have the 1st letter of the mintname" A / ا " and slight remains which could fit with " ابوشهر  " (bu / بو " at left top, and "shehr" just over the "B" of "zarb").
I hope that others will see the same...
I first thought to Isfahan but my guess is "Abushehr".
