Ancient Manuscript Review 96 : Antique Ottoman Mini Quran ( 18th Century)

This is a mini handwritten Quran acquired from Turkey. It is a complete Quran however I suspected the last 4 pages were replaced due to inconsistent handwriting. The Quran was written in a simple Naskh calligraphy. Undated but probably about 200-300 years old based on the design of its binding.
