Please help  to get  as more info as it possible: KM#, inscription,  ruler, year etc . thank you all.

This is a para struck in Tripoli, Valentine 28-29, which he dates to the reign of Mahmud II, 1223-1255 H (1808-1839). He illustrates varieties with 4 or 5 dots or a hexagon in the centre of the star. In my old Krause it is KM 117 and they say there can be 4-7 dots.

Valentine wrote an old but still very useful book called 'Modern copper coins of the Muhammadan states', originally published in 1911 and reprinted several times on more recent years.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
