Hello everyone

I am not very confident that it is a coin from the Princely State of Alwar.

Could someone help me out?

Thanks!!!

I forgot to mention, the coin is 15,20 gr and 18 mm

One of those very thick old Indian coins.

Your coin appears to be a takka from Bikanir, under Ratan Singh, 1828-1851, KM#23. Although I didn't find an exact match in Zeno, here are some with similar writing and symbols. Krause says the weights vary.

@mais, to help you with your research, pages 5 and 6 of this thread by @drnsreedhar have multiple examples of coins from Bikanir.
