GVF - Good Very FineIn 105h (AD 723/724) Yazid II ibn Abd al-Malik died and his brother Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik came to power and although this coin is dated this year it is not known which brother issued it. However, the date 105h is very rare. There is also no mint named – although it was most likely Damascus. Inheriting the caliphate from his brother Yazid II, Hisham ruled an empire with many different problems. He would, however, be effective in attending to these problems, and in allowing the Umayyad empire to continue as an entity. His long rule was an effective one, and it saw a rebirth of reforms that were originated by Umar bin Abd al-Aziz.
