OK, this is even more of a mystery than the previous. I'm not even sure whether it's medieval.

My initial guess: Golden Horde. A guy I showed it to immediately said "Ottoman akce", but I'm not sure how plausible this is.

I do feel like I've seen that pattern of squiggles somewhere... Crimea maybe?



15x12 mm, 0.77 grams.

I don't think the second pic is the right side up, but given my unfamiliarity with Arabic squiggles it's hard to say.

I agree it's similar in weight, shape, and style to come coins of the Golden Horde, for example this one

However, this isn't a match and I didn't find one in Zeno searching the 110 coins listed for Juchid (Golden Horde) with weights 0f 0.75-0.79g. Perhaps a wider search would help, but it would also take some time.
