Kindly help me identify this copper coin.
I cannot provide the weight as my weighing scale isn't working.

Thanks in advance!

If the weight isn't available, diameter and thickness may help, so that a good quality picture to obtain replies for members....

It seems that there is "....Qutb...wa al-din..." + date ? on left scan and "..Sultan Shah...+ ???" on right one .
A suggestion from style of this coin :"Qutb al-din Bahadur Shah" of Gujarat   ???

There is another possibility of this being Qutb ud din Ahmad shah of Gujarat. Please take look at this one.
