Hi,
I think it is Akbar Chitoor dam of year 100x AH. KM#28.14.

Thanks,
Saikat

More likely Ajmer.

Amitji,
I considered that. But Chittor issued dam after 1000 AH with mint name, however found nothing of the past 1000 AH date for Ajmer in zeno.
Thanks,
Saikat

Edit: I looked up Liddle and saw he mentions dams post 1000 AH for Ajmer. However, I still can not find a sample.

The above coin is a typical issue of Chitor, presumably dated AH1000. See for comparison https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=79816
