Overlord did again a good job. For the Dam denomination of a coin of similar type see ZENO #79817

Thanks Oesho and Overlord. So this is a Nisfi of Delhi with mint Epithet Hazrat, KM#22.6.

I found the following on Numismaster:
KM#   22.6
Denomination   Nisfi (Type 22)
Country   India, Mughal Empire
Government   Empire
Ruler   Muhammad Akbar (AH963-1014 / 1556-1605AD)
Coinage Type   Hammered Coinage
Mint   Delhi
Composition   Copper

or is Hazrat Dehli listed as a separate type?

AND the date????
