Hello,
Better search in Jaipur state
Seems to be a Nazarana New Paisa issue (large flan) dated AD 1897 RY18 KM-132
Weight is supposed to be around 11 g. for the silver Rupees so you coin should be a Nazarana New Paisa made from copper : weight 16 to 18.5 g. for the Nazarana New Paisa KM-106 (Krause did not give the weight of KM-132).
The coin seems to be genuine but I am not a specialist of Nazarana coinage.

Thanks very much, I was totally on a different track assuming the coin to be silver.... it is indeed a paisa from Jaipur. I've modified the title

Joseph, check out my Jaipur new nazarana paisa of this type here:

Based on the weight of this coin it should be a thick planchet old paisa.

That's a good looking coin Bhushan!
Yes the coin in this post is of the heavier weight but not listed in KM with the old paisas, for that date and RY
