Hello everyone! First time poster here. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out in identifying this seemingly silver rupee? I've down my own research but am finding it difficult to come to a conclusive answer. Any help would be appreciated!

Edited photos. They seem to get auto rotated when uploaded

Welcome to Numista!

Yes, a Mughal-era silver rupee. Appears to have the date AH 1119, which would put it into the first year of the reign of Shah Alam I. However, in a quick look through his rupees I'm not seeing a match. Perhaps someone else will be able to read it better. For best readability both photos should be rotated 90 degrees clockwise, and cropped.

Thank you for the reply and the welcome Seeker! I had a feeling it was from around then as well, but also couldn't find an exact match. Appreciate the input!
Went ahead and rotated/cropped for better future viewing

Good, you have greatly improved the clarity of the photos, and now I can see that the date actually appears to be AH 1139, putting it into the reign of Muhammad Shah. AH 1139 would also correspond to his ninth regnal year, with the number nine in the lower center of the first photo confirming this. Looking though the rupees of Muhammad Shah in "South Asian Coins and Paper Money" I didn't see a match, so can't tell the mint. Maybe someone more familiar with these will be able to.
