I think neither, but just a character in Arabic script. That picture is probably upside downish.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Check Indore / Gwalior. I believe this is from that region.

Sameer Panchal is fairly accurate in his attribution of Central India Copper coins. I would surely go with his views. A PM to Abhay (who is an avid collector of all things Gwalior) will help confirm.
