Is it possible to id this one please - or I am completely off considering this is ottoman akce ?


Probably inspired by a silver akce of Murad II.

Compare Zeno 293352, 293357

But the metal looks off and the design is really very sloppy. Possibly a clumsy contemporary counterfeit for a far-flung part of the empire, but why bother with such a low denomination?

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


From style, it seems that's well an ak├že of Murad II.
the right picture shows "ghazi.." with something before (sultan ghazi ?)
on left picture it seems that the mintname is off? (zarb & khald mulkh at top).
Murad II was called "Ghazi Sultan", maybe it could confirm that ?
