Hi - I assume this is Islamic?  It came from a batch of Croatians, and has clearly been fastened to someone's clothing at some point - perhaps a pilgrimage or crusades souvenir?

Any information at all would be appreciated!  I don't have a scale handy but it is quite thin and light, 12 mm.

 Great!  Thanks for that, as I really had no idea where to start at all.

  Cheers.

Levon is right

Ottoman AE Mangir Suleyman II (1099AH) mint is not legible.

  Wow - thanks.  This has started me poking around on sites connected with Islamic coins, and there's clearly a vast world of material out there yet to know!  I appreciate the help.
