    Looks like this Samanid coin overlapped with much of Persia, hopefully it is a good match.

    Here is one I unfortunately sold a couple years ago on eBay, probably pretty undervalued on my end but I didn't know much at the time.

    72hr rule? Here is a coin I've had for a few years but always was suspicious of the coin due to the calligraphy and weight/size not matching up to known varieties in Hartill's CCC and Zeno.ru, but I finally posted it to a group on FB and was reassured by several people that it is authentic, merely worn. I suppose it is a more uncommon variety given the lack of this calligraphy variety online, but I'm really not too sure.
