Description

FATIMID, AL-‘ADID (555-567h). Dinar, Misr 559h. Weight: 3.98g. Reference: Nicol 2694. Small edge clip, otherwise good very fine and rare. The unit of the date is curiously engraved and could, at first sight, be mistaken for a ‘4’ instead of ‘9’. Interestingly Nicol reports a dinar of al-‘Adid dated ‘554h’ – a year before his accession (Nicol 2689). The illustration suggests that the piece to which Nicol refers is poorly preserved, and it may be that the unit on this specimen was indeed misread in this way.

Estimate: GBP 700 - 1000
