nearly extremely fine
A-313K (RR). Very rare mint in the Caucasus. Also, the example we offer dated year of 149 AH is much Rarer than the same type dated AH 150.
Possibly the finest of only a few examples known. Truly a very impressive issue. The location of this mint is arguable. It may be in Iraq or may be in the general region of Armenia. From the Tareq Hani collection.
