Hello Folks:

Can anyone please help me with identifying this coin? Is this a real or a fake coin?

The weight is about 11.6 gms. All I could figure out is the mint which I think is Shahjahanabad. KM number or any other catalog number would be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

@director, this is not my area of expertise, but this Mughal Rupee from the Shahjahanabad mint looks like a match to me:

Yes, a match. It's regnal year 19, corresponding to AH 1149 or 1150 and approx. AD 1739. KM#437.4, also matches photo in Krause.

Great, thanks, but does the coin look genuine? I have a doubt as the calligraphy does't look up to the mark...

@director, sorry but I'm not sure that we have enough expertise here on CCF to assess the calligraphy. You might see what Stephen Album has to say.
