Hi All,

I recovered an old silver, coin yesterday. I've never seen anything quite like it but it looks to be a hammered coin with Arabic writing inscribed on it. Can anyone identify it or perhaps estimate the era or origin? Please see attached photo.

It's reminds me of a 1/2 real Spanish cob! Thanks in advance!

It is indeed Arabic/Islamic, and though I can't identify the exact date or issuer, the distinctive seriffed script dates from roughly the same time as the Crusades (AD 1100-1300).

Thank you for the feedback, Sap. Would this have been a common coin back in the day?
