Excellent piece, jaspersaini. You are now its guardian. Take good care of it.

Good question. The 5 is clear enough, but I don't know enough about the script to judge if there is a 1 to its left or if that's part of a character. Others would know.

Not an expert with these coins. If one were to compare with this one, the RY is 5 with the vertical stroke being the Alif of Ujjain (written as - A Va Cja na). However another coin on Zeno has the mint name Baldah Ujjain and the circle could well be the Ha of Baldah.

Okay, that's great. I have to remove RY 05 as it was originally saved, and to add: Baldah Ujjain.

There is a half rupee on Zeno,Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Shah Jahan, Half Rupee, Baldat Ujjain, Date off] [url=https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=155177]Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Shah Jahan, Half Rupee, Baldat Ujjain, Date off[/url] with similar 5 and possibly Baldah inscription.

I think I have to redo the label.
