Another I can't find (maybe I look in the wrong place)

There are similar copper coins on Zeno under Samarqand?

Yes, it's a timurid fals of Samarqand :  "zarb Samarqand" and probably the date in arabic letters on the other face ?

It's such good fun to see this coin identified. It's more than getting a label. I have seen the grandeur of even the ruins of Timur's palace. I know how important he and his successors are to Uzbekistan. I even have a favourite Timurid.  Who cares when the coin was identified?

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

A coin, re-married to its id. Excellent. I got to re-read my memories of Shahrisabz and Samarqand at a time I can't possibly go there as a bonus.
