Just bought another cheap coin over the internet for which i would gladly have an opinion from the experts here.

Edit: I initially added this to the Khayumarth coin post because of the similarity.
   After the expert identification by drnsreedhar i merged it to this topic

I noticed this coin because in the center of the obverse it clearly seems to read "Shams". This side very much resembles the Khayumarth coin.
The reverse looks terrible, but i think i see Nagari text. That makes a combination unknown to me.
It does also not fit with the issues of Shams-ud-din Iltumish, which would be the other most likely candidate.

I do not have the coin in hand yet so can't give the size. Weight is given as 4.5 grams. This are the sellers pics.
Would gladly hear your opinions on attribution ?

@THCoins: You are absolutely right about the "Shams" part. The other side seems to be upside down. I feel that it reads "Muzaffir shah Sultan" as in the rare Half falus coin of Muzaffir shah-I of Gujarat, G4 of G&G. The last part of "ta" of "sultan" seems to be off-flan.

Thank you Sir ! I had considered several Shams's, but not this one. Looking in Goron and Goenka i would say you are spot on. I gather the coins from Gujarat from this period have a lot common in style with the Delhi issues.

I only now see in the index that you recently posted one ! I missed that somehow. If you don't mind i can add these last posts here to your other thread to get both together.
