Although these are classified as Arab-Byzantine coins, there is so little of the original Byzantine design left (just the steps) that I personally question this classification.

Denomination : Bronze Fals.  Mint : Halab.

Date : these is not date on this type, so it can only be assigned to the period of AD 685 to 705.

Size : 19.2 x 19.8 mm.  Weight : 3.64 grams.

Reference : Album type 112.  Mitchner Islamic 16 to 18 variety.

Grade : VF with a dark brown patina and sandy highlighting.  Fairly nice for one of these.

Obverse : Standing caliph with sword, and Arabic inscriptions around.

Reverse : Pseudo cross on steps with Arabic inscriptions around.  Part of the reverse inscription is off the flan.
