Beautiful Silver Coin 1901 AD 1293 AH year 27 Egyptian One Qirsh Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II
Description: A great looking brilliant uncirculated silver coin from Egypt. This is a one qirsh coin from the reign of Abdul Hamid II the Ottoman Sultan. The coin shows the sultan's toughra, a rose to the right and above the toughra and the denomination below it all surrounded by a foliate design with quivers on the bottom. The reverse says Duribah Fi Misr (struck in Egypt) with the number 27 for the 27 th year of Abdul Hamid II's reign over the letter "Beh" on top and three stars above it all. There is also Abdul Hamid accession year of 1293 AH below it all on the reverse surrounded by a floral and foliate design along the edge. It is KM 292 measuring approximately16 mm in diameter and weighing 1.4 grams of 0.833 Silver. The coin has a reeded rim. It is marked with a "W" on the bottom of the obverse for the engraver Emil Weigand of Berlin. This is a rare coin in this grade being of such low denomination, which was heavily circulated and abused. Please carefully review scan as it is part and parcel of our description.

Condition: I would grade this coin as a brilliant uncirculated with all the details being very well preserved. The coin retains quite a bit of its original mint luster with some edge darkening. The coin has no appreciable wear but has scratches, some bag marks and some minor dings to the rim. It has some hairlines, but still has great eye appeal. It is much better than the photos shows. The coin has excellent eye appeal and is beautiful. Please see photo for additional condition information.
