Sultans of Dehli, Sher Shah Suri, Rupee, Shergarh, AH 949

I think I should not post this coin here. But seems more like Mughal Rupee. My poor reading ability. But the coin is very attractive to me. Nice inscriptions. Clear and bold but not cleaned. The style is like Suri coins. But don't think that it is from suri dynasty. Is it a Bengal tanka. I have shared all guess. Please help me out.

But the coin of mine differs from that of on Zeno on the red circled area. I don't know whether they are mint mark or not.

You will find the same upside down heart on the right coin here. I suppose it is a mintmark for Agra.

G&G D802.
G&G remarks "This and the next type were probably struck at a different Shergarh from that of the previous types."
