Though I am not an expert, the writing does look a bit dodgy............and Jaisalmer was in fact never a Mughal Mint. It started its production only after the state became independent.  The coins seems to be issues with the pseudo mint name Dar al Khilafat, Shahjahanabad. Can't make out the rulers name........

I think the piece was used as jewelry and the spot in the middle is where a jeweller attached a pin or an eye.

It's a jewelers imitation based on the rupee of Muhammad Akbar II, of Shahjahanabad mint. It may be fabricated in Jodhpur, but it is not imitated from a Marwar coin, as all Marwar issues of Muhammad Akbar II have the 'badshah ghazi' legend.

Thanks sir, Yes my thinking was a similiar one, but i got it in a very low price so may be its a contemporary forgery.
