For me it is a coin of Delhi sultanate in name of Islam Shah Suri, with a somewhat degenerated script : "Islam shah bin sher shah sultan.."/ no date visible?

It seems that it is a mintless type close to S.Goron's D1063 (F type) and Valentine 458.
In the upper part of the 2nd scan you can read "..al-muzaffar.." over "Islam Shah bin Sher Shah.."
Is it a half or one paisa?

I am not able to see a date, unfortunately I think it is off flan.
I join a drawing with legible parts of legends.
