It's difficult to say for sure because of the amount of wear on the coin, but it looks like it's a 5 Para coin from Turkey dated AH 1277?. Circa 1861 to 1876 under the reign of Abdul Aziz.

Thanks echizento. My dad found this coin and he gave it to me. I think the coin is from the ottoman empire period when Greece was subordinate to Turkish.

although it appears 1273, but I think it is 1277 may be because of the rust.
