Kinldy help in identifying this Indian coin.
Weight: 6.45 gms approx
Diameter: 19.05 mm approx
Thank you.



Most likely a 'Janjira' Paisa, used in Jafrabad area in Saurashtra. Jafrabad is a small town near Amreli / Rajula and was a part of the Siddi controlled Janjira Island.

I'm in agreement with Amit. Although not quite a match, the following coin looks similar to yours.

Janjira Island, Sidi Ibrahim Khan II, paisa, 1789-1792

Yes, it is a copper coin Amit.
Thank you Amit and Seeker55 for your help.
