Identification, please

Thank you THCoin for your warm welcome.
I have one coin at the moment that is a rare one (I hope) and is difficult to identify. Here is a couple of pictures of it.

Hello Bob, welcome to WoC. There is an excellent chance that your coin can be identified, but the details count and the picture is out of focus. That's not necessary. Learn here how to make sharp pictures with just a smart phone and a whiskey glass. The first picture is positioned correctly, the second should be turned 180°. The second pair should be turned in the same position.

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

It looks very like a forced Tanka of Muhammad bin Tughlug,  a clear/sharp photo will give more details of mint and date

Also, metal?  weight?
