Found just one with the same date and mint on Zeno 77415. Coins with similar weights are said to be mangirs.

Numista 152293 (ak├že, 1.9 gram)

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

Peter, I found quite a few Bayezid II akches from Kostantiniye https://www.zeno.ru/search.php?searchid=696802

Most Bayezid II seem to be about 0.8 gm which fits well with his 0.77 gm

The manghir though is a copper coin (as Numista 152293 and Zeno 77415 are both stated to be, copper manghirs), not silver.

There you are. I hade excluded the silver coins from my searches in the first place. It would have been good (at least for me) if iindica had specified the metal.
