Yes, Delhi sultanate, Fakhr al-Din Muhammad b. Tughluq (ruled AD 1325-1351), paika, undated, G&G D394. It matches the photo in Goron & Goenka.

I think it's interesting that in Zeno there are two coins of this ruler for which one side of each matches your coin, but not the other side, while both sides match for the photo of D394 in G&G.

Hi,
IF you look at the first zeno picture, the left picture needs to turn left 90degree to match with the above coin and reads "Muhammad bin Tughluq". The other side is fine and reads "Hasbi Rabbi (Sufficient is the Lord)".

The second picture is of different coin(D 421) which is of different text

My sample of D394 is here

Thanks,
Saikat

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