Mamluk, Sultan al-Ashraf Naṣir al-Din Sha'ban ii, Aleppo
« on: January 23, 2021, 07:17:13 PM »
Hello,

For your review/pleasure attached is the coin that I would like to ID...

If we go by the "flower' on one side... then it can be Mamluk similar to this https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=224356
or this https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=247701
or this https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=248488

If we go by the text that is partially visible on the other side then I leave it up to you (if you can read it...)

So I need your opinion and possibly the meaning of the text on my coin, please... :))

P.S. it is Copper / 2.3g / 15-19mm

Thank you in advance...!!!

Dear mti, I think your coin is:
Mamluk, Sultan al-Ashraf Naṣir al-Din Sha'ban ii, Aleppo mint (AH 764-778/1363-1377 AD)
First photo:
Field
السلطان الملك , al-Sultan (al-Malik), only al-Sultan is visible.
Mint should be above and below al-Sultan " Dharb Halab ضرب حلب ".
Second photo:
Six-petaled rosette in small central hexalobe.
Margin:
الملك الاشرف شعبان , al-Malik al-Ashraf Sha’ban (not clear)
