It's not easy to read the mintname....
The date in digits "1000" on square rupees is known only from 2 mints I think : Ahmadabad & Ujjain.
(for Urdu Zafar Qarin 1000 is written "alef")
I am not able to recognize here any part of "Ahmadabad" ...  "zarb" (at right) written with the "b" over "zar" was used by Ujjain and may be is it here this name with elongated rounded letters  ???

Ujjain is a suggestion...

I keep in mind your suggestion , thank you Saro for taking your time & efforts to attribute.

Cheers ;D

After extensive search I found exactly similar coin with same Kalima type calligraphy except AH 1000.

The coin was sold as lot of 3 square rupee in auction 34 , Lot 34.44  as Ahmadabad Mint.

Pls refer central coin.



Awaiting opinion from experts.
