Outstanding specimen! I am certain I have one myself, but can't find the pictures. In the meantime, here is one of my other coins...

Mysore: Krishna Raja Wodeyar (1810-1868) AR Rupee (C#207)

Obv: Persian legend in multiple lines - سک زد بر هفت کشور سید فضل الله خامی دین محمد شاه علم بادشاه (Sikka zad bar haft kashur saya fazl al khami din Muhammad Shah Alam badshah; Defender of the Muhammadan faith, Reflection of Divine excellence, the Emperor Shah Alam struck this coin to be current throughout the seven climates)
Rev: Persian legend in multiple lines with regal year - ضرب میسور سن ۴۸ جلوس میمنت مانوس (zarb Mahisur san 48 julus mayimanat manus; Struck at Mysore in the 48th year of the auspicious reign)
