Although the mint is visible under the green gunk the clue here is on the reverse,  it reads as panchah Gani instead of the usual ra'ij so it's a Tanka of fifty gani, Takhtgah Daulatabad mint, date looks lik AH 731, G&G# D402

Thanks a lot.
So quite an interesting issue.
And yes you are right I should try with a little bit of oil to remove some dirt.

Nice coin you have there.
I am not used to playing with chemicals, so I'll first try my method  :)
