Lot 454 - islamic ottoman empire - Stephen Album Rare Coins Numismatic Auction #22

TRIPOLI: Mahmud II, 1808-1839, BI 20 para (6.87g), Tarabulus Gharb, AH1223 year 7, KM-137, UBK-119.02, slight weakness in strike, otherwise very attractive, with much of the original silver-wash, EF, RRR, ex Ken Bovenkamp collection, ex our Auction 14, Lot 464. This piece has a star rather than a sprig at the upper left of the obverse, thus as KM-137 rather than KM-136, but KM-137 and its equivalent, UBK-119.02, are both listed only for year 8. The listing of year 7 for KM-136 is also correct, as is clear in the KM photo. This variety is probably unpublished, or at least never recorded in the principal catalogs.

TRIPOLI: Mahmud II, 1808-1839, BI 40 para (11.98g), Tarabulus Gharb, AH1223, KM-141, UBK-117.02, superb strike, choice EF, RRR, ex Ken Bovenkamp collection, ex our Auction 14, Lot 465. An apparently unpublished variety, with the Arabic letter B (including the point below the letter) in lieu of a number for a regnal year. Since B represents the number 2 in the abjad numerical system, it would appear that the B must refer to regnal year 2. This type is known with regnal years 1-3, plus without regnal year (with a flower rather than an Arabic letter in the appropriate location). Another interesting aspect of this piece is the retrograde accession year 1223 on the reverse, presumably the result of the engraver's chiseling in the date on the reverse, even though it was already totally clear and properly engraved on the obverse.
