Elichpur, copper paisa. The name of the ruler begins with an 'A..., most likely Shah Alam II or Alamgir II. I would prefer the last. See also: https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=126664

Thanks a lot for your reply. But, in the reverse of the coin, the coin i posted has w shaped letter in two layers, whereas in the zeno coin referred by you has got only one such w shaped inscription. Any idea about that?

The W is a part of the 'S' of Shah in Badshah and Shah of Shah Alam / Alamgir.

Any chance to consider Aurangazeb Alamgir?

Based on Abhishek's theory (mentioned here in details), This is Alamgir II for sure.
