Nice little coin,  it only reads as 'Falus'  but definitely not from an IPS,  Afghan, Iran or one of the Khanates I would think but I've not seen this type before

Afghan copper.
The strange animal which looks like a  double tail lion !...  is in fact a peacock walking to left.
A similar coin is attributed by style to Qandahar by  S.Album auction (lot 581 / auction n°26) but with the peacock to right.
