I am having trouble locating the word یکهز on this coin. The picture in KM looks different at that spot. Can you help me?

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

Thank you Peter, your attachment shows a picture of 2000 dinar coin and not 1000 dinar. The legend رایج مملکت ایران , "Rayej Mamlekat Iran" and below that, is the denomination " 2000 Dinar دو هزار دینار ". There is a mistake in KM.
