Dear Friends
I've uploaded one more coins at http://coincollectorsofindore.blogspot.com/ . I assumed that it is a mughal coin. Please provide more details if any available about this coin.

Not much detail is available on this coin. It's a copper dam of Akbar, however, mintname nor date can be observed as to little is shown on the flan. The obverse shows a part of Falus with a four-lobbed ornament above. Such ornaments are found on the dams of several mints and therefore no indication either.
Andrew Liddle, Coinage of Akbar (Gurgaon 2005) has listed them also under "Mysteries" (See #13).
