IRREGULAR ISSUES

843/4-c.855 AD
Irregular stycas are thought to have been struck during the period 843/4 and circa 855 AD. In some cases the legends attempt to copy the name of the ruler and / or the moneyer of regular issues. On others, they become that blundered as to be illegible or meaningless. An interesting under researched group produced at a time of social and monetary unrest.
