This silver half drachm (hemidrachm) dates from 772-793 AD (over 1200 years old), and is in superb about uncirculated condition, much higher grade than is typically found for coins of this era.

The coin comes from an area known as Tabaristan, a region in northern Persia on the south coast of the Caspian Sea. Although the area was ruled by a number of different governors during this time, coins with the style introduced more than 100 years earlier continued to be used, including the image of an anonymous King. The back design features two attendants flanking a fire alter. These coins would have been used locally as well as for trade throughout the middle east and Europe.
