Good day everyone...

I have this coin that needs your opinion and if possible an ID:  1.7g  ||  18-20mm  ||  Looks Copper or Bronze

The first image has good details (not sure which side is up or down...)

The second has some visible text... (if you can't see it, I will try to make a better angle - with it, more is visible at light...)

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

Thank you Alan... :))

I hesitated between Ilkhans, Juchid, and Mamluk...  I thought it was something close to this one:  https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=159151  b/c of a canoe-shaped-lines with texts inside of them...

Then I saw this one:  https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=250742
and this one:  https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=238054  but the two horizontal lines on the opposite side from the "canoe-shaped-lines", threw me off...

And, then, your reply, is the exact match to mine... (even though the date, on mine, is not visible...)  Thank you, again...  =))
