Description

Soltan Hosayn, 1105-1135 AH (1694-1722). 2 Abbasi 1123 AH (1711), Isfahan Mint. 13.00 g. Presentation type. Album B2677 (note). KM 270 (as 2 1/2 Shahi). Sehr selten / Very rare. Gutes sehr schön / Good very fine. Fassungsspuren auf Avers / Traces of jewelry on obverse.

Purchased from M. Saffar, London, in 1998.

Some examples of this type weigh in the range of 8.5 grams and appear to be a somewhat reduced weight 5 shahi coin. In any case, many donative issues do not adhere accurately to the weight standard for circulating coins.

Important note:
Certain countries (among them the USA) currently impose import restrictions on coins and medals originating from what is now the present territory of Iran. To still allow collectors, dealers, museums and other interested parties who might be affected by these regulations to actively participate in the auction and acquire these magnificent pieces for their collection, SINCONA offers to store the auctioned pieces safely and covered by our insurance in our vaults until the customer specifies the shipping location or picks them up personally. This unique and exclusive service, including the specific insurance, is free of charge for our auction buyers.
