Possible Ottoman Documentation

Post by RMJQ2002 » 30 Mar 2022 13:40

Hello all, a friend of mine recently purchased some items from an online auction, inside one of the items some documents were enclosed. It may be a long shot but i was wondering if anyone may have any idea as to what any of the symbols or letter may mean or if anyone could point me in the direction of where to look in order to find this out.
Many thanks in advance :)
