Possibly?
Barry tells me he thinks it is a Paisa from Bhonslas, but another I can't find in the catalogue.

This is the so-called trisoolee paisa struck by the Bhonsla Raja of Nagpur at the Nagpur mint.
This type was struck during 1825 when Dr. Gordon was in charge of the mint and continued up to the closure of the mint in 1854.
Ref.: Prashant P. Kulkarni, Coinage of the Bhonsla Rajas of Nagpur (Nagpur 1990), Type 49.
