I guess this is a Mughal Rupee 1186/13, but I cannot identify the mint. Please, help!   :D

The mint mark on the obverse a star like think looks like that of Ahmadabad, but the revere looks like that of Allahabad, I would say km#709.1.

The legend on the Obverse (left side) reads (bottom to top):
Sikka Mubarak
Sahib e Qiran
114x Muhammad Shah Badshah Gazi

The Reverse reads (bottom to top) right image:
Julus (RY) 13 Maimanat (the squiggly line) Manus
Zarb (B or Be is the divider)
Dar al Khilafat Shahjahanabad (Vic has done it very well)

An excellent spciment considering all of the legends are seen on the coin.

I think the coin could benefit from a bath in warm, soapy water in order to get rid of at least some of the grime. Otherwise, with just one shroff mark but a remarkably centric strike, a nice piece of work, enhanced by the excellent teamwork, with special compliments for the overlay. Altogether a highly enjoyable thread that wil help future users.
