Yes, it is well a camp money of Akbar:
legend may be read from right san to left one and bottom to high : "zarb falus / urdu ..==>..zafar qarin / Ilahi 37"
Ilahi 37 = 1000 AH

Dams "urdu zafar qarin" with Ilahi datation have never the ilahi month.
These coins were struck in the imperial camp during military campaigns (and may be during visits of provinces ?); without specific mintname or precise dates, it was possible to use these "standard" dies everywhere.
The first series haven't dates and the "alif" series (1000 AH) where struck for many years before 1000 AH.
