Salah al din Yusuf ibn Ayyub, is more commonly known as Saladin and famous as being the foe of Richard the Lion Heart during the crusades.

Denomination : Silver 1/2 Dirhem.

Date and Mint : There is no mint or date on this issue.

Reference : Album #789 variety (two reverse dies).

Size : 13.6 x 15.4 mm.  Weight : 1.48 grams.

Grade : Fine (struck from slightly deteriorated dies).

Obverse and Reverse : Arabic inscriptions.  This is a slightly odd type because it is struck from two reverse dies, rather than an obverse and reverse pair.    I have seen a number of these like this, probably too many for it to be a simple accident.
