I don't have a clear answer for you but to get you started:

I first found this:

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces37587.html

Which was odd because Muzaffar Shah III was Sultan of Gujarat not Nawanagar.

Which brought me to this search:
https://www.zeno.ru/search.php?searchid=459684

Then this one:
https://www.zeno.ru/search.php?searchid=459690

But I could not find a precise match. But It is dated (9)78 and is most likely from Nawanagar.

It is however slightly concerning that two horizontal lines do not tough the element below it(you picture is upside down) and the top line above the Devanagari script is incomplete.

There are also similar coins from Porbandar but this coin doesn't match them either.
