Bronze Coin 1947 AD 1366 AH Egyptian One Millieme King Farouk I
Description: A beautiful uncirculated or better 1366 AH or 1947 AD Egyptian one millieme (tenth of a Piaster or Qirsh) bronze coin. The coin depicts the uniformed bust of king Farouk the first facing left and wearing a fez on the obverse. The reverse has the denomination, the AH and the AD dates and saying "al-mamlakah al masryah" or the Egyptian Kingdom. The coin is nicely toned and has great eye appeal, it is much better than the scan suggests. Please carefully review the scan as it is part and parcel of our description.
Size and Weight: This is a 1/10 of a Qirsh or one millieme, weighs ~4.3 grams and is ~23 mm in diameter.
References: It is KM #358.
Condition: I would grade this coin as a beautiful uncirculated or better with all the details being very well preserved and having very nice eye appeal. The coin has a few scratches, bag marks and some minor spots of light oxidation. However, these do not distract from the beauty or quality of the coin. It is much better than the scan shows. Please see photo for additional condition information.
