Sharing my newest Mughal coin acquisition. I need expert advise about the mint and year. It looks like Jaunpur Rupee.

Wish I could help. It looks like a very clearly struck coin, but the writing is too much for me.

I see that silver mughal experts are dumb  :-\ ...
I think that the mint is more likely Agra and the date : 978 AH , present at 12 o'clock (limit at top of 1st picture)

I agree there. Sharp details, and taking the camera lighting at face value, beautiful color. Love the look.
