Mintless/Dateless "Badshah" variety (Rahman type 67 var.), most likely struck at Kabul.

More of these in this thread (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,12620.0.html). A thoroughly enjoyable coin with great historic significance. Overlord's analysis makes it accessible to everyone!

The legend reads: zahir al-din muhammad babur badshah. What Overlord indicated in red is actually bad + shah (in blue) above. In blue next to al is babur (ba + br above).
The coin corresponds indeed with Aman ur Rahman type 67.
