Hello All,
Would appreciate if my attribution of this rupee as Jodhpur KM35 (South Asian Coins) is correct?
Coin is ~21mm and 11.33g

Thanks in advance

Yeah it can be attribute to KM#35.
But for more correct attribution refer https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=262599

Thanks Parimal,
I note zeno link provided that this example has a sword on the obverse?, though on my example the sword is missing, being more like KM35 on this side?
Any thoughts
Thanks

The coin depicted as KM#35 in Krause catalog are the type of coins that has been provisionally attributed to Budsu mint by Jan Lingen in his book "Marwar (Jodhpur State) History and Coinage". That's why I provided the zeno link for more details about the coin attribution.
The book is the best resource on Jodhpur coins. It depicts 13 varieties Budsu mint coins and mentions that more die varieties exists. So your coin is just a different die variety of Budsu mint coins.

Jan Lingen's id on this forum is Osheo. Maybe you can request his help on your coins.

Also on your coin a small sword can be observed, between 'Muhammad'and 'Shah'.
The numbers on these coins consist of combinations of just 2 numbers, resp. 1 & 2, like 1 and 2 (your coin), 211, 1121, 1611 (6 retrograde for 2). The probably refere to the accession date of Muhammad AKbar II, viz.: AH 1221 (1806).
