Aurangzeb, AR Rupee, Akbarnagar,error with retrograde 3

This is a peculiar rupee that's probably a contemporary forgery because of it's low weight 10.60g

Dated  AH1098, regnal year 30 is engraved backwards but other than that the engraving seems to be of good quality, not sure what is happening to the flan lower left, on close inspection it appears to be ornamentation, possibly remains of another coin overstruck
