Please tell me the year, country, denomination, grade and value in US dollars for this coin in today's market.

I happened to find this coin in the same drawer where its bigger brother, http://goccf.com/t/74898, was located.

I hope this little one can help ID the big bro.

This is Egypt part of the Ottoman Empire (centered in Istanbul, Turkey)
1/40 qirsh (Egyptian version of kurus) of Muhhamad V. Ascension year is AH 1327, reignal year 2, so the date of your coin is about 1910. Supposedly it is minted at Heaton mint, Birmingham, England, but I have trouble seeing a tiny H on the botton of the tougra side.
The top pic is pretty much upside down, the bottom one needs to go quarter turn counterclockwise.
Value? about $1.50 - 5.00

1/4 turn left turn for the bottom picture attached:



Does this smaller coin assist with obtaining a better description for the larger one?

Good turn

It appears the two coins are from two different parts of the Ottoman Empire, and I believe they were struck for different sultans.
