4,52g / 17mm - ridged edge 1233 AH  " ضرب رشت"
This coin is the quarter denomination of this one and seems to be unpublished ?
Full value and quarter exist, no doubt that a half should have been struck in that same year 1233 AH....

Dear Saro, the date on this coin looks like " 1234 ۱۲۳۴ ", which is during Qajar, Fath 'Ali Shah period.

Thank you Saro, yes, both  " 3 & 4  ۳ ۴ " are very similar when handwritten as shown in attachment.

Attached a new picture of the date, the two digits "3" are somewhat elongated.
On the other hand, I wonder how the oblique streaks were made on such an irregular blank ?

Thank you Saro, you are right, it is now clear to me that the last digit is a " 3 ۳ ".

For comparison of sizes : the 2 coins dated 1233 AH / 18,03g & 4,52g.
( the shadow shows the streaks well )
