Boyoboy, whatta beauty is this Priceless Islamic Masterpiece!
The Burji dynasty ruled Egypt from 1382 until 1517. It was a turbulent time, of constant bickering and short-lived sultans. Burji ('of the tower') refers to the residence of the first Burji Mamluks, the Citadel east of Cairo.
Silver half dirham, Album 1014, Mitchiner WOI -, VF, weight 0.763g, maximum diameter 13.2mm, AH 861; obverse arabic legend; reverse arabic legend around and within circle; (RR) RARE ++++
No excuses for the high price; it's a great coin as a numismatic, and a stunning eye-catching to-die-for beauty, but besides all that, it's a great and GENTLE psychometric, with plenty of hours of fun-filled ANCIENT SHOPPING!!! Terrific market scenes and interior events, mostly household, but some governmental scenes, not clear where or when these are.
If you just want the straight coin type without the TRIPLE-HOT psychometrics, I can get them a lot cheaper. Email me with that request and I will find one that fits your budget!
