Aurangzeb / dam of Hyderabad mint - light weight standard (ref Brown : 3407 / Lucknow museum)
The legend is :
left picture (high to bottom) : "hyder / date AH / abad / zarb" ("D" of Hyderabad is on left of "zarb" and "R" at top) I am not able to read the date.
right picture (bottom to high) : "falus / regnal year / mubarak / sanh" (falus & sanh are off and r.y not clear)
"All I know is that I know nothing" (Socrates)

Thank you saro for another incredibly detailed description, trying to read the date it looks like 111 & badly drawn 6

 under a lens  RY has a clear 4 & probably a 9 or 7,the 7 being slightly higher both numbers squashed into the space , so if AH1116 the RY would have to be 49?
