Malwa type issues - Top looks like Akbar and bottom either Shah Jahan or Jahangir. We had a discussion on such coins recently.

Are these actually  attributed to Malwa as weights don't fit correct for any square copper coins

Coins  under Shah Jahan minted at Ujjain seem to fit the description, weight is correct also
