    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    That I do indeed!

    The coin shown above is a circulated example of KM Y#44. I'd call it VF/EF. It is 10 francs, minted in AH1366 (1945AD) in Paris, 20 million made, copper-nickel. These are quite common in circulated grades, so value is around $1.

    I love the design-work of Moroccan coins. Along with being compatible with the traditional Islamic prohibition of engraving images of people or animals, they incorporate designs from various versions of the Moroccan flag. Different versions of the flag have had a five-pointed star, a six-pointed star resembling the Star of David/Seal of Solomon, and an eight-pointed star made of two overlapping squares as seen on your coin's reverse.

    Here's one with the Seal of Solomon (AH 1289 = AD 1872): Morocco 4 Falus AH1289 = 1872 copy.jpeg
    They almost always have a flat spot on the rim where they were removed from the casting tree (1:00 position on the reverse of this one).
