Fun coin. With my very limited knowledge of arabic script, I wouldn't have been able to appreciate the detail: the coin being in the name of Shah Alam but struck in Nasrullahnagar. This is a very complicated period in Indian history, dominated by strongmen and plunder and your very nice coin is a perfectly good talking piece on that period. TFP.

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