Grading/Status: About uncirculated and extremely rare.

Notes
This is extremely rare coin is struck with a single Zar-i Mahbub dies but on a double weight gold flan. Coins of this unusual type were known to have been struck for presentation in Egypt. Because the dies covered only a small area of the flan on which they were struck they resemble little shallow cups. Students of later medieval Byzantine numismatics called coins that used the same technique "scyphates". Few of these pieces survived.
