Description

Abbasid Caliphate, third period
al-Muktafi billah Abu Muhammad 'Ali b. al-Mu'tadid, AH 289-295 (902-908 CE). Presentation double Dinar AH 290, Madinat al-Salam. Standard abbasid third period dinar legends on both obverse and reverse. 8,45g. Album -.
Extremely rare and extremely fine.
This extremely rare coin of double weight is clearly a presentation piece even if it was struck with the dies for the circulation dinar. The flan was perfectly cut and the care in the strike is far above average.
