Hi again to all.

This time I have a coin that I think I may have managed to identify but would like the opinion of someone who knows about these sort of coins.


I think that it is a,
' AYYUBID, AL- NASIR SALAH AL-DIN YUSUF (SALADIN) AH 564-589 AR SILVER DIRHAM, HAMAH MINT (RARE), AH 582',
from comparing it with a google picture of that named coin. The nearest coin I can find on Numista is https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces76773.html. I would like to add it to my collection but don't know if I need to do a new page and whether I have identified it correctly. Any help and advice will, as always, be much appreciated. Thanks to all that take the time to read this post.

Did you try Zeno?

Thanks for that PetrusAscanus, I now have another resource on which to call on. I'd never heard of Zeno before.

You can try to post on Zeno, but it is not always allowed.
So then you can send your pictures to Vladimir : charm@postman.ru

I've pretty much convinced myself that it is the following coin as on Numista-

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces114879.html

However there is two choices for 582 and that is type A & B. There is no explanation of the difference on the page. Is there anyone on here can shine some light on what the difference between A & B is, please?
