Most likely Muhammad Shah because I don't see 'B' of Bahadur after Shah on the top.

Is mint Multan or Itawa?

yes most probably muhammad shah, but there are coins with badshah gazi title in the name of ahmed shah too. About the mint, most eligible candidate is imtiazgarh but the shosha of gaf is not there so its ruled out, firoznagar and firozgarh also not possible, qamarnagar also doesnt fit, much confused.

I had a second look at the piece. It is quite crudely engraved. So I presume it is a late issue of Muhammad Shah. The mint is still troublesome, but Imtiazgarh comes most close to it. The 's' like symbol for 'kaaf' of '....garh' might be of the flan.
