I think that it's the 1/8 paisa Goron D937 / no mint and catalogued as R (rare)
legend : Sher Shah Sultan / Khalifat al-zaman

Dear Saro Thank you. Now I can read Sher Shah Sultan but is there any possibility that the top one is Islam??

Dear Tariq,
Yes,  you are absolutely correct and at bottom of reverse we have also clearly :"al-'adl"; then it is  D1085
full legend is now : "Islam Shah / Sher Shah / Sultan" and "Khalifat al-zaman al-'adl"

Thank you Sir for your help.
