This is a very rare early anonymous jital “ it might be a copper counterpart to the silver anonymous dirhams in the name of œQa™an al-Adil� issues from the reign of Toragene (639-644 AH) on. This type of copper coin has only recently been identified and remains exceedingly rare. Most of the known coins are in a very poor state of preservation, this is quite an exceptional quality specimen.
