I used a free to download program  called PhotoScape which does practically everything that expensive apps like Photoshop can do such as removing your hand from your coin and attempting to give it better colouring which was not so easy as your photo is far too yellow

nice i am gonna download it now.thx
wish me luck

Good progress. It is useful to think of the person you want to use your picture. The first picture (23k) is very small. The design is clear but the letters are not. It is excellent for an inventory, a sales list or any other situation in which the coin is already identified.

The second picture is much heavier (103k), but every detail is clear and sharp. This is a perfect picture for identification.

The third picture is very large but of about the same weight (108k) as the previous one. Its details are blurred and it is larger than most computer screens. Though the picture is larger, it is actually less useful for identification or for illustration than the two first pictures.

I like the bread stamp! See here for a modern version.

I presume the coin is an akçe? Is it identified? If not, can you post it in a separate thread, please?

I would turn it 90° counter-clockwise and assume the text is Greek. Something like ΚΡΑΑΝς ?

It means cranes (the birds) in English. A symbol of elegance in Asian cultures, fertility in European cultures. Keep in mind that my reading is somewhat speculative, especially where the N is concerned.
