Dear Experts Pls advise attribution of coin with legend details.
Is it Khusro II Shiraz mint and what are the inscription, Date/Year and portrait details.

I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I think it is a forgery: the script is very sloppy and the curvature of the crescents on the obverse is far too shallow. The star above the crown looks nothing like a star, the ornaments on the side of the crown are curved rather than being nicely square, the moustache should be joined to the upper lip, but the lips are separate with the moustache between them.

Dear Alan,

Thanks for your time and detailed analysis of the coin. I had this coin for almost 10 years and have been struggling for attribution. This detailed explanation was very helpful. Thanks again.
