Your attribution is correct.

The coin has the Ba-Hazaraan Barkat couplet:

Sikka-e-Zad Bahind Ba-Hazaraan Barkat
Shahenshahe Bahr-wa-Bar Rafi-ud-Darjat


Struck in India with thousands of blessings
(by) King of kings on sea and land, Rafi-ud-Darjat

Not a very easy coin to find.

Thanks dear, you are right that these rarities are never discovered without a great deal of effort. It consumed a lot of effort and time from my side, I had to search each and every jewellery shop not only in my town but also the nearby towns to find these jewels but once I find few of these items my energy is renewed and this goes on. :)
Please elaborate If Rafi-ud-daula Shahjahan-II Lahore mint (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,13689.0.html) coin rarer than this coin?
