A very similar type for sure, I can clearly see Misr but the word above looks different, EDIT: seems it reads Misr al-Mahrusa.

Hello, I bought this in 1994 and I have know clue at all what it was until 2010 when I saw two of those from Egypt, but they said the coins was from Shajar al-Durr. What I was not shure until I saw your post here. Can you tell me which one I have here?

It is definitely from Egypt. I cannot recognize so much details, but think it is most probably the same type as the coin of Arminius.

So, it will be possible to be ; Murad III., Al-Mahrusa Misr, Sana 982, Kabaklarli # 12-Misr-10
Thank you very much Afrasi for your time. Like I said before, this is a longue time I'am looking to confirm this coin. Internet is such a good reference for the old coins, reference and information I was never expecting to have when I was a kid in the country. Thanks again
