I believe that this is a coin gifted to me by Tariq some time back. I am now not able to find the details. Please help attribute.

With the coin weight of 10.10 g, can some one please help further attribution and a G&G reference? Can the date and mint be read?

The mint (by default) is Delhi and this coin appears to be undated.

The coin would have been produced sometime in 960-964 AH

It is a half dam if the weight is around 10 gms.
Here is image of a dam of around 20gms

This half paisa  of Muhammad 'Adil Shah seems unlisted on G&G and appears to be of same type as the paisa D1130 dated 962/ Nelson Wright type D; probably scarce.
No mint/ the date is off flan
(Nb: the denomination"dam" has been introduced by Akbar, so this coin isn't a "1/2 dam"..)

Dear asm, it's not a "d" but the "i"of "fi".
The upper part of the right picture is the usual formula :"fi 'ahd al-amir al-hami"

This one seemingly escaped notice for the index due to it's title so I'm altering it now, still checking G/G to see which one it is,  mintless type I think but as saro  points out it's likely unlisted
