I picked this out of a coin album I purchased from an auction recently, but don't have much experience with Middle Eastern pieces. I did see that it only has a mintage of around 1m but also that there were proofs struck.
The surfaces of this one are reflective and the details sharp, full hairlines in hair, beard etc.
Hoping I could get some second opinions.

Strike looks sharp and strong but most likely cleaned. Leaning towards a regular strike for me.

I think this is a regular strike and would grade it around XF or XF+.

Great pickup! Looks like this coin is usually pretty well circulated and that sharp pieces like yours fetch pretty high prices!

I do think there is a small bit of wear, and agree with the opinions here of normal strike, and something like EF+ to AU.
