    I found an old post about the identification of the coin. It was said it is an Aghanistani coin. I learned one of the official languages is Persian. I can read 1327 at the bottom, but what they are in the middle and on the top.

    Thank you!

    It is not Afghani but Ottoman Turkish. It says "dault-i-3uthmaaniyyah, qustuntunyah....10 paarah"

    The Ottomon State-Constantinople, 10 paarah

    It also says "ضرب فی" (zaraba fi) I think , which is arabic for "coined in"

    So the whole thing says :

    ضرب فی دولت عثمانیه قسطنطینیه

    Coined in the Ottoman State, Constantinople

    Thank you aaqaa-ye-Aryamp. I was n't quite able to decipher these words. Now after what you have said, the correct wording is:

    Dhuriba fii (The passive for Dharaba).

    I think it has to be read like this:

    دولت عثمانية
    ضرب فى قسطنطنية
    ۱۰ پاره
    ١٣٢٧

    Ottoman Empire
    Minted in Constantinople
    10 pare
    1327 (=1909 CE)

    Sorry, the program used by this site has made a mess of the third line. The number should come first of course.
