Islamic, Ottoman Empire. Mehmet II Fatih ('the Conqueror'), second reign: 855 - 886 AH (1451 - 1481), AR Akçes (12mm, 0.72g) [dated 885 AH]

Obv: Mehmed Sultan bin Murad Han

obverse translates to: Mehmed Sultan, son of Murad Khan

Rev: Azze Nasruhu Serez düriba sene 885

reverse translates to : "May he be victorious; struck in Serez year 885" (year outside the planchet)

One of the most important changes in changing the Akçes in 885 was the re-introduction of the title “Sultan”.
