Yes, I know. The coin is in terrible condiition.
But, after enlarging it via digital photography, I think it is a Trambiyo (it weighs 4.3 grams).  I think I see part of the Sri, Ra and some of the Ya on the reverse.  If I'm right, the coin is B-51 (The coinage of Kutch by Richard Bright) or C-25. Anyone else have an opinion on this?

I think you got it, Rangnath. I also think I'd never have found that. Applause.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Thanks Peter. And thanks for including the red circle. 
When I first looked at the coin, I tried to see a trident where there is none, in the obverse.

All of which reminds me of how important and enlightening it is to reconstruct whole dies. I added those done by Overlord to my files...
