Update July 2017:

Type B, quatrefoil/inner circle type Mint Kayseriye written in different style. The low weight and style of legend might suggest that this type could rather be a local contemporary imitation. This type requires further study.

Update February 2018:

In the picture below, you can see exact replicates of 12 silver dirhams (mint, kayseriye; date, 712 AH) of Uljaytu being also identical to the coin, above, in my collection. Thus it is understood that it is not a contemporary imitation but a product of modern forgery. Identical weaknesses on the observe at 4 o'clock and reverse at 1 o'clock can be recognized easily. It is likely produced by pressure casting using transfer dies.
