Caliph Al-Mustansir

Denomination : copper Dirhem. Mint : Ibril

Date : AH 623 to 640 (AD 1226 to 1242)

I have not attempted to read the date or mint on this coin, and assume both the date and mint are off the flan.

Reference : Album-274 (listed as a Fals).

Size : 23.7 X 25.5 mm.  Weight : 8.40 grams.

Grade : aVF

Obverse : Arabic inscription which if fully on the flan would read al-imam la ilah illa Allah al-Mustansir billah amir al-muminin.

Reverse : Arabic inscription which if fully on the flan would read lillah  Muhammad rassul Allah salla Allah �alaihi, with the date and mint around.

Both the obverse and reverse show clear signs of this coin been over struck on an earlier issue.
