Hi, m8s!
I have several dozen similar coins. Most of them are copper, some silver or silver plated. They are poorly minted, it is difficult to recognize what is on the coin.
I posted the photos of the coins on several forums, but got no help with identification
Maybe here one of them can be identificated. Or maybe somebody can give me a link to the oriental numismatic site?

It's pretty small. Maybe a Mamluk Dirham like this https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=250322

Someone like @Kushanshah might know. The main website for oriental coins is Zeno.ru, but you have to look at a lot of coins!

I agree, a Mamluk fractional dirham. Because they are struck from dies intended for the full dirham, only a small portion of the design is visible on any given coin. Sometimes a few letters is enough to identify the sultan, other times not.
