There is something about the coin that rings alarm bells.

Dear Desibot, your coin details:
Mughal, Dawar Bakhsh, Silver rupee, AH 1037/RY Ahd, Lahore mint
Obverse: Farsi inscription: “ أبو المظفر داور بخش پادشاه / الواحد  “, Abu al-Muzaffar Dawar Bakhsh Badshah Sanah Ahd (One).
Reverse: Shahada, date " 1037 ۱۰۳۷ " at 2 O’clock, and mint at the bottom “ Zarb Lahore  ضرب لاهور “.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

I agree with Amit; this coin is suspect;  smooth and clumsy script and small cracks on flan could indicate moulded copy of a rare coin  :'(

Just wondering if its a copy of a rare coin struck on a old common one...
