NOTES: *Steve
Album states Mush'sh'a were a shia' religious sect in the southern Khuzisten province of Iran which rebelled against Timurid and Qara Qoyunlu and had success in creating an autonomous region in Huwayza, Shushtar and Dizful areas of Iran and managed to strike their own coins. However they lost their rule in AD 1530 to Safavid king and became vassals of the Iranian ruler. Mush'asha' people remained in the area till late Qajar or early Pahlavi period but they left the area for other countries as far as the southern California (see the Cheklist, 3rd edition pp. 273-4). From the examples I have seen, Mush'sha' coins must have re-struck on other earlier dynasties.
