Turkish term or phrase:Hurdebâncı
Osmanlı esnafı devam.... korkmayın 200 adlık listenin hepsini sormayacağım:)
Explanation: 'Hurde' is similar to 'hurda' = 'scrap iron, scrap metal'
A 'hurdaci' is a 'scrap iron dealer'.
Perhaps 'hurdabanci' has a similar meaning (iron dealer, iron worker, iron monger)? Just guessing....
