Hi.  I was just gifted a coin from my late grand fathers collection a few days ago.  Over the last couple of days I have been going through the various posts and the material posted which was available to try and identify the coin and its details as this is the first coin I have from the Mughal period.

Matching this with images of other coins I checked, I believe it is a coin of Shah Jahan which has been minted in Surat.  May I request you to confirm if this accurate and if you could help me identify the date and other information on the coin.  Appreciate help / inputs from all of you.  Also guidance on how to read the content on each of the 4 lines of both sides of the coin would be very useful.  Thanks in anticipation of your responses.
