I believe it is Qara Quyunlu, Jahanshah (841-872), silver tanka from Tabriz, Album 2493. Unfortunately the date is off to the bottom left on the left image. The reverse needs to be rotated 180 degrees (the mintname is in the centre in upside down in a square). The nearest on Zeno seems to be http://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=66383 . There are two similar in SNAT Vol.9, 543-4, dated 869 H.
