    coin/token with possibly ottoman/arabic features? please help!

    hi there i bought this the other day, and the person i bought it off didnt have a clue what it was either. on another forum someone said that it looks like it has turkish ottoman/arabic features, but could not say what it was. jus so you know the side shown in the image is the same as the other side.
    any help at all would be appreciated!
    thanks in advance

    p.s my girlfriend seems to think it may have some pagan features too

    Hey Leathersock,

    The other side is the exact same? No writing or anything on the coin?

    I'll try to do some research on this one, but it might be tough for me, I don't recognize it at all. I am going to assume it is a token of some sort, but then again...

    It is definitely some kind of Ottoman/Arabic style token, not a coin of course, as there's no value on it..

    This forum might not have the right experts on it, you could do a little better posting the coin on this forum here http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/
    Please feel free to visit the link to see some excellent coins

    Yeah I never found anything on this and there really is nothing I can 'look up' on it. Let us know.
