asm, I have a slight suspecion (just gut feel, nothing concrete) regarding its authenticity. Is the mass within range?

Overlord,

At first look even I was suspicious. However the dealer assured me that it was authentic. What is the cause of concern? I would like to know.

Many of Jahangir's mints produced such sophisticated coins with beautiful calligraphy.  Your coin does not quite live up to my expectation, at least that is where my suspicion would arise. But the design and weight are correct.  Perhaps the coin has suffered during the last 400 years. Perhaps it was buried and then subjected to harsh cleaning.  What do you think Amit?
Mind you, my first thoughts of your coin were Wow! THAT looks interesting!  I love Jahangir's coins.
