To me only Ry 32 visible on reverse.

Square area type.

The fabric and style of the coin + the RY date of 32 indicates to me that this is an issue of Shah Jahan with the RY date further indicating it as the last year of his reign.

The coin is struck from very worn out dies so the lettering is wide & flat, looks like Surat on left margin of top image ?
