The general consensus of opinion is that this countermark was probably applied to the coin in Bulgaria
Coin good very fine / very fine, countermark very fine.

It is unusal for this countermark to be applied towards the edge, usually it is a central strike.
 
It is believed that this countermark was applied to mainly Serbian coins towards the end of Dusan's rule in the Black Sea regions as no coins of his successor Uros V ( 1355-1371 ) have been recorded with these countermarks. The coins selected for countermarking are usually clipped, damaged or worn.
