Mintless/Dateless "Badshah" variety (Rahman type 67 var.), most likely struck at Kabul.

More of these in this thread. A thoroughly enjoyable coin with great historic significance. Overlord's analysis makes it accessible to everyone!

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The legend reads: zahir al-din muhammad babur badshah. What Overlord indicated in red is actually bad + shah (in blue) above. In blue next to al is babur (ba + br above).
The coin corresponds indeed with Aman ur Rahman type 67.
