Looks like Ottoman - Libya, is it...?!?!
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:21:41 PM »
Hello, Hello... :)
Here's what I know about this coin (first image with edited text):  0.9g / 14-15mm / Copper
At numista (thanks to ZacUK) we were able to find this: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces79877.html

Hence the second image is taken from there.  Both of these coins have similarities in texts...  Please, tell me what is written on the coin with the edited text...

The 3rd image shows a barely visible hexagram similar to the coin in the link above... so there we have a 100% match...

And now the question is, are these coins from the same family of coins...?!?!  (Libya???)

My coin does not have the dates on the bottom of the first image, it has text instead (what does it say...???)

Thank you in advance for your help...!!!  Have a pleasant day...!!!

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

The year 26 in my collection has 4 dots in the centre of the hexagram, a hexagram with one dot I have only for year 25, similar to the piece shown by mti.

Thank you Afrasi for your remark; although the condition of this coin is bad, but I thought digit " 6 ٦ " was on the far right side which makes 26 is a favorable number. Still, RY " 25 ٢٥ " is also a favorable number.
