explorer:
Hi all,

Please, help me to identify this Abbasid falus: mint, year, ruler.

Thanks,
Explorer

Nassif:
Most probably this coin is attributed as follow:
Mint:Madinat as'salam-[a little bit blundered:Baghdad actually]
year:217 H around 832 AD [Sabeh achar wa ma'aitein]
Under the authority of Caliphat:Al 'Ma'mun 194/218 H------810/833 AD[but the name is not struck on the coin,which was very common on copper coins]

Thank you, Nassif!

Can you please, say me additional thing - what is the small sign on the obverse side just under "Muhamad Rasul Allah"?

Thanks,
Explorer

Nassif:
It's "bakh" very controversial word,without real sense...in my opinion,unless somebody can tell us something about it....

bakkar:
Abbasid fals mint of Gaza in Palastine  217 H, rare..
The word "Bakh" below means in English "welfare".
regards
Bakkar
