Nice coin, high grade, good photos. Appears to be from India, Mughal era (in other words could be Mughal, a princely state, or British India during the later Mughal rulers). The word Shah appears on the second photo. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it more specifically. I don't see a date on the coin.

This coin also appears to have been coated with a shiny substance (glue, varnish etc.). If you wish to remove this coating you could try soaking in hot water or if that doesn't work maybe acetone or ethanol.

Thanks to both of you!

It seems that andyg is absolutely right:

And thank you, Seeker55, for the advices.

I can buy this coin for about 10 USD, but still hesitating because of the coat and mostly because of the right shifted coinage (2nd photo - that's why the date is hardly visible, only the last 1-2 numbers, it is probably 1262)
