Very nice state of preservation. Would you count it as a EIC coin?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Since this is a coin issued in the name of the Mughal Ruler, issued to the specifications dictated by the Mughal Authority, having the legends, weight and purity mandated by the Imperial court, I will term this as a Mughal issue minted by the British.
