Unknown Arabic Coin Ae 19.06 mm 8.65 g
« on: September 06, 2020, 02:08:50 PM »
As part of a small lot, I obtained this interesting Ae coin.  It measures 19.06 mm and weighs 8.65 g.  It is outside my area of knowledge and any help identifying it would be helpful!  Pogh_poor

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
