Hello,

We are almost sure this is Indian. Maybe a paisa from Gwalior in the 19th? 17 mm and 9,04 g. Very thin : about 5 mm.
Topic in French https://www.numismatique.com/forum/topic/75241-identification-monnaie/ I turned the photos from the original topic, as I think they needed to.
Thanks!

Not an expert on these but to me it looks like a Sultanate coin. Probably Malwa or Dehli. Date X43 is clear. The right image shows the mint name which may be Dar-al-Mulk ......

Not a sultanate coin but a mughal copper tanka of Humayun (called "bahloli").
The mintname is well "dar al-Mulkh Delhi"/ dated "fi tarikh (9)43 ".

Thank you Saro, details of this coin:
Mughal, Nasir al-Din Muhammad Humayun (first reign), anonymous, AH 943, Billon 'Bhalodi' or 1/2 dam, dar al-Mulk Hazrat Dehli mint (AH 937-947/1530-1540 AD)

Mirza Nasir al-Din Muhammad ( میرزا نصیرالدین محمد), better known by his regnal name Humayun (همايون), was the second Mughal emperor, who ruled over territory in what is now Eastern Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Northern India, and Pakistan from 1530 to 1540 and again from 1555 to his death 1556.
Delhi is English spelling. Among local people and in Hindi, it is spelled as well as pronounced as either 'Dehli' or 'Dilli'

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

Thank you both, I am going to edit the answer in French.

Yes, saro. I missed the mint name used on the Bahloli's of Humayun. I saw Dar al Mulk and my brain wnent to the Sultanate times. Thank you for the correction.

Brilliant teamwork, gentlemen. I am a little part of such a team from time to time. For me, it is great fun to see an id come together with people building on each other's inputs.
