Since this thread i've tried and tried to compare the tughra with the Ottoman Sultan tughras and am stumped. A couple of possibilities but nothing firm.

Is there anyone who can translate the bottom half (or take an educated guess) of the tughra? This is supposed to be where the name of the sultan should be. The sultan's name would help narrow down the age of this yataghan.

By the way, the place of manufacture would be Focha, Bosnia (according to Elgood).

Jose,
Looking at your work it is absolutely amazing. What you are doing I think firmly puts you on the path that Buster Warenski took for his King Tut dagger.
