These three coins (first one pictured) Salvete stuck in an envelope together and labelled "Suri?"
Unfortunately I don't know a lot else about them.

This one is 17.2g

Thanks Overlord :),  Krause has the weight as 13 to 13.8g this one is 17.2g - a mistake in Krause?

Zeno lists a couple of coins in similar mass range as yours as "Dam". I could not find a separate entry for a Muhammad Shah "Dam" of this mint in the Standard Catalogue.

A similar coin on ZENO weighs 17.64 g.
The info with Krause is obvisiouly wrong.
