First Umayyad Dirham purely: Silver Dirham, Wasit 44h

Dirham description:

Silver Dirham, Wasit 44h (sic) , 2.75g (mint and date combination unrecorded by Klat in Post Reform Dirhams ). Very fine and very rare. This coin, while a genuine Umayyad Dirham, bears an impossible mint and date combination.It is possible that an inexperienced die-sinker in the newly-established Wasit mint absent-mindedly repeated arba’ (four) in place of thaman (eight) in the decade.Such errors are very rarely found in the Umayyad series


* as we know first Umayyad dirham was 78H

That is mean considered as error stark, so what this seal mean? it is purely in simple kufik font , the font style in my opinion prove the font in the dirham

It is just a view What a Face
