I hope it is because of light effect. I see some brass like reflections. If it is on the coin, isnt it doubtful?

After posting the pictures believe me I was also suspicious about brass effect due to light .

But when you have coin in hands and check with magnifying glass , immediately doubts get clear about its genuineness as pure silver coin instead of plating of silver.

I think it is ahmedabad mint due to the fabric of the coin.. Oesho or overlord or saro or any seniors can confirm it...

It's not easy to read the mintname....
The date in digits "1000" on square rupees is known only from 2 mints I think : Ahmadabad & Ujjain.
(for Urdu Zafar Qarin 1000 is written "alef")
I am not able to recognize here any part of "Ahmadabad" ...  "zarb" (at right) written with the "b" over "zar" was used by Ujjain and may be is it here this name with elongated rounded letters  ???

Ujjain is a suggestion...

After extensive search I found exactly similar coin with same Kalima type calligraphy except AH 1000.

The coin was sold as lot of 3 square rupee in auction 34 , Lot 34.44  as Ahmadabad Mint.

Pls refer central coin.
