A seller has this coin up for sale and it is not a Chingiz Khan coin but his son's Ogodei khan.
AR dirham. Jital style. 630-640AH. "be-dovvat-e aferidegar"- by the Power of the Creator".
A-1978K 15mm 3.2g 002UGD0030
he has the correct reference 1978K but has listed it as Chingiz Khan coin. Also for reference CNG had one for sale. Seller was notified of whose coin it is but has not taken down the incorrect name of the coin. I do not know if coin forum allows me to show coin however an expert will be able to identify coin. What bothers me is seller is aware of correct name of coin but continues to sell under wrong name of coin. I feel for the person who purchases this unknowingly. What does a person do when the seller is unresponsive to correction? Is there anything that can be done except have others contact him to correct? Help!

Interesting coin. Coins are missed labeled all the time, you can do what you did and try to let the seller know beyond that there really isn't much more you can do. Hopefully the person that buys the coin knows enough about it to realize that it's not a coin from the Great Khan.

To be fair, it's value comes from it's rarity and the unusual Persian legend. Since the coin is anonymous and cites only al-Mustansir (1226-1242), one cannot say with certainty that it was not issued by Chingiz (1206-1227), only that it is much more likely to have been issued under Ogedei (1227-1241). This type will appeal to an advanced collector who knows exactly what he is buying. There are more common, less inexpensive coins attributed to Chingiz available for those who want a representative coin. Some sellers appreciate a 'heads up', others don't. It's all you can do.
