Hello All. This one has me stumped. It was labeled as a Delhi Sultanate coin, but I don't find anything like it. Any help is appreciated.




Weight is 16.3g
Diameter varies from 21.6mm to 22.2mm
Thickness is 5.71mm

Welcome!

For best identification results, the weight to the nearest tenth of a gram and the diameter to the nearest millimeter are very helpful. I don't attempt to ID most Indian coins without these, so if you'll provide these I (and others) can give it a try.

Thanks, of course, I should have added weight and size.
I edited the original post with weight, diameter and thickness.

Thanks for adding weight and diameter info. A search of the Zeno database revealed that, accounting for different dies and striking positions on the flan giving some variation, your coin matches a gani of the Bahmani Sultans

Shams al-Din Muhammad Shah III, Goron & Goenka BH114.

There is a partial date at the bottom of the second photo, most likely 87(2 or 6).

Wow thanks, you nailed it!
That looks like a mighty handy database.

These are many cases where the die is larger than the flan.
Devices on the coin vary in placement.
Making it difficult to identify.
I recall a case where I bought a "well centered strike".
Trouble was that the date was closer to the edge on the die, so it wasn't readable on the coin in hand.

I'd have guessed 6, 2 would have a straighter line at upper left.
