Hello,

I recently picked up a 1938 20 Fils coin featuring King Ghazi from Iraq.

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces24801.html

Both K&M and Numista list two varieties, 1357 (1938)and 1357 (1938) I

Can anyone tell me the difference between these two? The differences are not discussed in the K&M catalog.

Thank you!

There is a tiny I at the bottom of the king’s neck on the obverse. That might be the 1938 I

1938 was minted at the British Royal Mint and the 1938 I was minted at the Bombay mint.
