Silver rupee of Shah Jahan II, Multan mint, AH 1131, RY 1, KM#415.19.

Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Shah Jahan II, Rupee, Multan, AH1131/Ry.Ahd

Yes, rare because Shah Jahan II only ruled for one year.

I am a little concerned that it is very round and a good full strike (rarities for Mughal-era rupees), but I think probably this is just a nicely-struck example (as is the one shown in Zeno), and on balance I don't doubt its authenticity.
