Morocco before the French Protectorate. Scarce BU example of an incredible Islamic design. Features what KM calls a Star of David, struck before the formation of Israel and it's demonization.

Right, many of my categories are are grouped by cultural influence rather than by strict geography. It's problematic to assume casual visitors know their geography but for collectors interested in Islamic/Middle Eastern coinage they can find what they are interested in by browsing this category. It probably should be placed in two categories to 'have it my way' and to follow the dictates of the map. I suppose that's why I placed it in "Others" subcategory - to sort of cheat the map. I'm reconsidering...
