I'm pretty sure that it is a Akce of the Ottoman Empire, but when asking for identification, please provide photos of both obverse and reverse as well as the diameter and weight of your coin.

Best regards,

Paul

This is an akche of the Ottomans from the Edirne mint, issued by Mehmed II (1st reign 848-850 / 1444-1446; 2nd reign 855-886 / 1451-1481). The date is difficult to read - 865. The 5 used back then looks like a curved 9.
