Is this a Rupee of Jahangir, minted at Akbarnagar, month: Khurdad, KM#145.4?
Can the dates be seen on this?

The AH-date is for the earlier coins located above the Nun of nur al-din. There you may observe also a part of 'sanah'. The regnal year is located on the top of the reverse. Here an 'eight' can be observed above the Kh of Khurdad.
The AH date on the obverse is somewhat difficult to read, but might be read a 1021. The dot between 2 and 1 may be for the Nun of Sanah.
So the complete date may be read as 1021/8 Khurdad, however, for the month Khurdad only the date combination 1021/7 and 1022/8 are correct.
The date therefore remains a bit of a puzzle.
