    The coin is definitely Afghan, poor thing seems to be flattened out with a hammer to fit the ring.
    I see amir sher ali written on the top, so it must be barakzai dynasty.

    I see the numeral 8 and what looks like a 0.
    Sher Ali ruled from 1280AH which was 1863. so 1863 should be the date of the coin. Though I cannot see the 1 and the 2.
