Another contemporary imitation of tetarteron

Among the cheap Byzantine copper I came across an entertaining imitation of tetarteron. Honestly, it is difficult to identify a sample taken for copying, most likely, it is a kind of collected image based on the tetarterons of Alexius I Comnenus, and possibly, Manuel Comnenus. "Tetarteron" minted on a light thin copper flan, it seems like cut off from the copper sheet.

Many thanks to joma-tk!

How did you know that this is the crusaders imitation minted in Edessa? Is this type of coin been cataloged, or  the attribution just a version?
Here, by the way, is another similar sample, a bit larger, approximately 22 mm. in diameter:
