The Ilahi date is "50", written over "zarb", just before "Lahore".

Thank you for confirmation! I also just about figured it out as I tried to transcribe.
Akbar died in 4 Aban, Ilahi year. 50, this coin was minted in the last 4 month of the great king.

Very nice coin, superb analysis, Saikat. I'd never have found that 5.
