  • No one know ?

  • I'm no expert, and certainly haven't seen enough old coins in that condition.
    It kind of looks like a sand cast to me, there is texture on the whole coin.

    Bronzes are always hardest even for experts in the series to identify, as they have a much less standardised design - they tended to have been issued locally for local use, so each mint-city issued different types.

    As to age, the best I can offer is that those little serifs - the notches on the tips of all the letters - tend to be from the mid-period, around AD 1100-1300. Seljuq, Ayyubid, Artuqid and perhaps Mamluk are my best guess options.
