    Can anyone help please with C14 Arabic script? All I know about the coin below is it's supposed to be a Golden Horde dirham, C14-15, 1.23g.

    I think it's one of these (dated 720, without countermark): (Dirham "Dang" - Muhammad Öz Beg Khan, Qrim al-Maqrus mint, 1313-1341).

    But I can't read it (and the script is flattened) so I'm just going by vague shapes. Also, the one above is 1.05g so quite a bit lighter.


    Thank you!

    I think you are correct. The central portion of the right image reads:

    sultan Muhammad
    Awzbek khan
    'azza nasrahu

    The mint and date are in the margin on the Kalima side and even though mostly illegible must be Qrim 720 by type.
