Not a coin of the Suri dynasty, but a paisa of Muhammad Shah, Elichpur mint.

The description on these coins is only partially visible. The obverse reads (as far can be observed) Sikkah Mubarak / Bad Shah Ghazi /Muhammad Shah.
The reverse: Zarb  Falus Elichpur.
See for a better struck specimen KM#430.1 (South Asian catalogue) or A430.1 (18th cent., 4th ed.)
