Definitely Charles though

CR and crown one side and single wee fat thistle on the other, quite a bit smaller than every other turner I've seen

No idea then.Never heard of a turner penny.The Charles l turner is 1.5mm smaller than the Charles ll but yours look smaller than that.You need a Scottish coin expert mate.

 Charles 1 did a penny or half turner, same as the twopence, but only one point behind the lion. ( Turner has two points) and weighed 29 grs,  half turner 9 .7grs.

James V1 did a penny  which weighed 17 grs.
