Hi. I have several coins that I cannot identify, I will start 3 topics, all are bought fro a bazaar in Bhopal so I presume they are from that area, more or less, but I could not figure them out myself.

The second one: 3,6g ( looks to be uniface)

This looks more like a weight than a coin. The plant may be hemp, or it may be a royal trident.

I have found paisas from Mewar (Chittor) that have a resemblance, with trident on a face and lines on the other, also half paisas from Umarda, but this one I suppose should be a paisa by weight (a little heavier though). It looks uniface but it might be just worn?

Finally, I found the match:
Gond Kingdom, Devogarh Branch, AE Paisa, Anonymous, Garhamandala State, 17th-18th c.
Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Gond Kingdom, Devogarh Branch, AE Paisa,
Mine is lighter, but as zeno says, "size and weithght varies"

Congratulations! FWIW, I think you got it. That id also makes a trident more likely than a flower/plant.
