Title: Falus AlamxxxxIs it Aurangzeb Alamgir/Alamgir II/Shah Alam Bahadur/Shah Alam II

The Obverse clearly reads (bottom to top) Falus Alam..... The reverse seems to read Narnol.

Would it be possible to attribute the coin to a particular ruler as Alam was a part of the name of 4 rulers of the Mughal dynasty.

The coin below (also from the same lot) seems to be very similar and if I have read it correctly, it points to Alam rather than Alamgir.....Am I correct in my reading?
