A flintlock gun  8),  i think some of these are attributed to Bengal Presidency, Akbarabad  (according to the date),  others are Maratha issues and there are also unofficial Kachcha issues.

Most of this type coins with a flintlock pistol, were struck at Akbarabad (Agra), prior to the occupation of the British on Oct. 18th, 1803. Only those with a clear date and regnal year post 18-10-1803 (AH1218/Ry.46) may be asingned to the British administration.
