Here is a piece of art imitation work.
Fashioned as a half rupee of Shahjahan from Ahmadabad mint, of the year AH.1037, this looks very much like a genuine coin. On a close look, you can see that dots have been tinkered on the reverse below "Muhammad". Its weight is 3.46gms, less for a half rupee and more than of a quarter.

This is a Nisfi (Half Dam) coin of Akbar from Alwar mint. Obverse of the coin is struck in mirror image. It should be that the die was made in its positive form so that the impression became negative.


Given below is the picture with flipped obverse image.

Dear MarkAndre2814,
These coins are from the Indian Princely State, Jaisalmer. Denomination will depend on the weight.

Two India Mughal coins of Muhammad Shah AH 1131-1161 (AD 1719-1748):

Muhammad Shah was the Mughal Emperor from 1719 to 1748.
He ascended the throne at the age of 17 with the help of two brothers whom he then had murdered.
His reign was infamous for the invasion by Nader Shah of Persia who sacked the Mughal capital carrying off, among other things, the Peacock Throne.
The Mughal Empire then went into a decline.


Mughal Rupee Muhammad Shah Kashmir AH 1160 (AD 1747) Year 30
Silver, 23 mm, 11:36 gm, KM 436.36

Obverse: Three horizontal lines of text
Line 1: Muhammad Shah (King, this line is outside the flan on this coin)
Line 2: Badshah Ghazi (Emperor and fighter for Islam)
Line 3: Mubarak Sikka 1160 (Auspicious Coin, year 1160)
The year 1160 is on the obverse below the center. AH 1160 is around AD 1747.

Reverse: Three horizontal lines of text
Line 1: Manus Sanat (Associated year)
Line 2: Julus Maimanat 30 (Reign tranquil prosperity, regnal year 30)
Line 3: Zarb Kashmir (Struck Kashmir)
(Struck Kashmir in year 30 of his reign associated with tranquil prosperity)

The regnal year 30 is on the reverse at the right.
It equates to AH 1131+30-1 or 1160 which is around AD 1747 also.


Mughal Rupee Muhammad Shah Muhammadabad-Banaras AH 1161 (AD 1748) Year 31
Silver, 15 mm, 11:35 gm, KM 436.15

Obverse: Three horizontal lines of text
Line 1: Muhammad Shah (King)
Line 2: Badshah Ghazi (Emperor and fighter for Islam)
Line 3: Mubarak Sikka (Auspicious Coin, this line is outside the flan on this coin)
The coin has no year visible.

Reverse: Three horizontal lines of text
Line 1: Zarb Muhammadabad (Struck Muhammadabad)
Line 2: Manus Sanat Julus Maimanat 31 (Associated year reign tranquil prosperity, regnal year 31)
Line 3: Banaras (this line is outside the flan on this coin
(Struck Muhammadabad in year 31 of his reign associated with tranquil prosperity)

The regnal year 31 is on the reverse on the lower right.
It equates to AH 1131+31-1 or 1161 which is around AD 1748.
Muhammadabad-Banaras was a mint located in what is now Benares or Varanasi.
