Muhammad II coins.
In the case of coin ID.No.054,presence of part of Nazir is taken as an indication to deduce that the fragmentary legend on top row is Muhammad and the coin is M190 G&G.

Very little to go on, but you made your point convincingly. Now how do you go from there to know that it is a coin of Malwa?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

This square type belongs to the Chanderi series and is so characteristic of Malwa there can be no doubt but working out which ruler is somewhat more difficult
