Very unusual silver rupee with a completely retrograde reverse, Emperor Muhamed Aurangzeb Alamgir (1658-1707), Mughal Empire

Very unusual silver rupee with a completely retrograde reverse, Emperor Muhamed Aurangzeb Alamgir (1658-1707), Mughal Empire
Persian legends with the titles of Aurangzeb, normal on obverse and completely retrograde on reverse. VERY rare and unusual. 23mm, 11.4 grams. Krause -.
Most unusual piece - it seems to have seen some circulation, with a bumber of banker's marks on the edge and a number of drill marks on both sides. The style of the inscriptions is very crude - it is perhaps an imitative piece, though it is not likely since it was struck in good silver, or a sort of a mint "test" coin.
