Civic Copper - Iran, bull type / Tabriz
« on: June 06, 2020, 09:08:10 PM »
This looks like Tabriz,
it does have a date - I think 1133 (as per Valentine) with the 33 being visible.

Not the Ibex, but the other side looks good and the shape is similar also. Or am I just seeing sweet nothings like "zarb" and "falus"?

This is a typical oblong coin of Tabriz;  I join Peter to say that at first view there is nothing else easily legible than "zarb falus", however I think that the shadow mint name is present at left.  ;)

That's the 33 of the date I think....

That could be well the 2 last digits ?
On these bull types, the date is in fact most often placed at left of "falus", some others have the mint name...
