Definitely Akbarpur Tanda but afraid almost nothing of the mint is visible. Mint is written below the date 974AH.

I really like the patina on this coin. The writing looks almost surreal in the picture.

Now that I know where it is, I can at least read the first two digits of the date. I guess you went by the style of the calligraphy to id the mint?
