Hello I'mánot a huge world coin person US for me but I happen to be in an antique store and the person had tons of world coins for 10 cents each and I saw tons of silver coinage so I looked through it and grabbed the silver that I could. I have this little coin its Ottoman Empire I've figured that out and I think it maybe a 1 Kurus, year (1876-1908) maybe KM##8239;735. Does anyone actually know the year?
Thanks CG

Regnal year 30 (right below the toughra on the top image, in Arabic), which translates to 1904-05 (30 Islamic years after 1876 CE).

Ok Perfect so I assume I am correct about the demonization of 1 Kurus?

A 1 kurus coin is about 15 mm (5/8 inch) across, 2 kurus around 18 mm (11/16 inch).
