'Abbasid AR dirham, al-Mu'tadid, al-Shash (Tashkent) mint, dated AH 280. Possibly a modern cast copy but I can't condemn it from these photos alone. Compare a number of genuine examples here: https://www.zeno.ru/showgallery.php?cat=17179

It is more likely a modern counterfeit. It is stylistically incorrect and the calligraphy is too crude, especially evident in the word "dirham" and the caliph's name "Al-Mu'tadid" in the reverse. There are several errors in the legends too.
