weight for scale or token

It looks like a coin weight. The precise nature of the crown may be able to date it; I believe some UK coin weights have different crowns depending on who was on the throne when they were made or authorised. The same may apply to British India.

At a guess it should weigh 11.6 x 3 = 34.8 g or thereabouts. Does it?

I'd say definitely a weight, and probably late 1700s by the style of the crowns and the shape of the 3.

Absolutely positively not a coin. Weight looks right to me; I would expect that Fosseway is right about the weight of the piece. Still, odd that it says Rupee, not Tola. Compare the Habib bank gold and silver bars. Perhaps this piece was used by jewellers?

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