Nice specimen of a rather scarce type ! I think the depiction of the bull on this one is very cute.
The Sharada legend and the style of the horse make it unlikely this coin was minted in Dehli. An origin in the Lahore region seems more likely.

Thanks Anthony. I will agree on the mint location. Sharda script were more prevalent in Kashmir and other north western region than Dehli so that is likely been struck in Lahore.
Thanks,
