KM# 126.11 under Jahangir (Srinagar) looks quite similar to me. Any other candidates?

The closest coin I can find in Liddle's new catalogue is a Double Dam attributed to Deogiri (type C-20). Could this be a Dam of the same mint?
There is a Dam reported as well (type C-30) for this mint, but it is a different type, having the mint name at the bottom. There is no Srinagar copper reported under Rawani types so I take it that the one in KM is also Deogiri.

I wish I could help, but all I can say is that your coin look 75% the same as the Srinagar coin pictured, including even date and regnal year. However, the top part of the bottom picture of your coin does not look like a match to me.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Thanks Peter. That's the most critical part---the mint name.  ;D
The most probable option from Liddle's book is Deogiri and that's what I'm going to label this one unless someone has a better suggestion.
