seen these jewelry
pieces listed on ZENO
- but I could not find this coin under Algeria (That wsa my instinct... to look at Algeria, as the obverse
DID look llike that type
But the date and the odd reverse
lettering made me wonder if it was a fantasy piece! I did not connect the piece to Jewelry
Piece because I thought the coin was copper, and a large coin. (I was working off of a photo).
On a slightly different (and funny) note -- I just bought a lot of Medieval/Renaissance pieces from a dealer in Budapest.... some nice coins, from the pictures... but there among them is a little golden-colored Islamic
coin (with a hole, as pictured on Zeno
); and the same type
. I think it is a copy of an older piece than Mahmud.... but I'd bet the farm it is one of these jewelry
pieces! What a coincidence!
Again, many thanks for your help
