Size and Weight: This a five piastres, which is approximately 26 mm in diameter and weighs ~7 gm of 83.3 silver. The coin has a reeded rim.
References: It is KM #349
Condition: I would grade this coin as a good extremely fine with all of its details being well preserved and readable. The coin is better than the scan and the photos suggest. It does have scratches and some bag marks, which can be seen in the scan. The obverse retains some of the coin's original luster while the reverse is nicely tones. The coin has wear commensurate with its circulated status, especially on the high points of the king's face and cheeks, but is great looking with nice eye appeal. Please see photo for additional condition information.
