Civic copper animal / flower ornament
« on: January 24, 2020, 10:37:02 PM »
I am not sure what animal this should be?
Lion, wolf, ...?
The ears appear to be a little to long for a lion.
On the reverse is a flower ornament which I would rather attribute to Afghanistan than Iran.
Size: 15X27mm
Weight: 4.28gr

Nice coin and mysterious animal : long tail and ears that actually don't look like feline ears...

I found this one with a similar animal.
Coin is completely different but the lion as Album describes it, has a similar tail and similar ears.
