Hi All
I have received these coins from the south of Iran and I have doubt that if they are real! weight: 2.5 gram
what do you think?

Looks like 10-12th century Iran area.
Do you have better photos?

Strike looks good but flans are way too perfect round and weight 2.5 g. is very suspicious.

Welcome to the Forum, the soft details, edges, weight and general look raise concerns, I would tend to think that they are fakes but please provide us with diameter.
