Corrupt and rough persian legend which reads :
left picture / from top to bottom in 3 lines : "Jalal al-din / zarb (?) / Muhammad Akbar badshah"
right picture : the kalima (sunni faith formula)

It's an islamic token which exists with the kalima in a square or in a losange,  like this one.
I possess a similar one citing Sher Shah Suri. They were not made at time of Sher Shah or Akbar but probably in years 1900-1950.

There is no market for such pieces. If you should meet someone really interested, you can ask more. In most cases, there will be no interest, though. Coin collectors who see the interest of tokens are scarce.
