Ottomans in Libya, AE Manghir, Tarabulus Gharb mint

This turned out to be more interesting than I thought as the legend is written retrograde..

No date visible however so it has to be anonymous

Did you mirror the picture? KM # 117! I have two similar pieces. Here is the better one:

Is the weight correct? It could be a contemporary forgery...

The weight is 5.78g when the scales have warmed up,  several on zeno don't give the weight so I don't know what is the correct weight

Why do you think your coin is mirrored? I don't think so.

My shown piece weighs 4.04 g, the other one 3.77 g. All Libyan copper coins of that time are crude struck and vary considerable in shape, diametre and weight.

In my opinion your photo on ZENO shows a mirrored inscription, but your photo here on WoC doesn't.
