@chew, first welcome to CCF. Second, looks to me like your second pic needs to be rotated 90 degrees clock-wise. In any case, this looks like a late 18th Century Ottoman coin to me as I'm reading the fixed date as AH 1203 and the regnal year as 9 so roughly 1797 AD. Could you please add the weight and diameter of this coin to the thread? Thx.

Hi,

I'll try to do that tomorrow, since I don't have a precise tool to measure the weight.

Regards,

The mint is Islambul, a former name of Istanbul/ Constantinople.

@chewie, if the diameter is about 38 mm (1 1/2 inch), you likely have this: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces79795.html

@tdziemia sounds about right, but I'll measure weight and dimensions tomorrow, just to be sure.
