Agree, Dyell 283 = Tye#238, attributed to Qunduz mint.
The "bird"symbol is visible in the Tye catalog, but here looks more like the Chanel brand logo.

Neat picture too. Methinks that there is detail to be gained by removing some green at two o'clock on the side pictured on the upper picture. Olive oil would do the trick.

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