From SBOx (Shailen Bhandare): Shah Alam I – Elichpur mint, Dam.  :applause: for Overlord.
An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Posting a few variants of the same type from Elichpur mint. Thinking on typology grounds, these are all Shah Alam-I. But when year is not visible one cannot be sure.
