I see some similar, but perhaps not identical, Mustafa III coppers in Valentine.

For comparison with the OP coin (at top), several coppers of Mustafa III from Tunis. The OP coin may be from 1176 H, same date as the one halfway down. Just guessing here...Hopefully Kushanshah checks in.

Thanks Bob for the help! I think you got it, I'll look more into those coins, definitely helps the search when it's narrowed down to a single country and ruler.

Update on this coin:

I recently bought the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1701-1800.

This coin matches KM #55, Tunisia Qafsi - Mustafa III.

The picture that was associated with this coin on Numista was actually Mustafa III's kharub, which really threw me off.

I fixed the Numista listing and it now has my photos: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces83643.html
