Safavid. Muhammad Khudabandah ibn Tahmasp ruled from AH 985 to 996 (AD 1578 to 1588).  Mitchiner spells the Kingdom name as Safevid, and this rulers name as Mohammed Khundabanda.  This particular type is identified to the countermark, which has been placed on an earlier coin.

Denomination : Silver 2 shahi.

Mint : Qazwin. Date : AH 992 (AD 1584)

Reference : Album-2624.

Size : 19.3 x 21.4 mm.  Weight : 4.57 grams.

Grade : the Countermark is VF.  As with most of these countermarked coins, there is a test cut along one edge.  The countermark has oblitered much on the under type on that side, but the other side is clearer than usual for one of these.

Obverse : Arabic inscriptions over which has been placed the Muhammad Khudabandah countermark that reads "adl shahi" along with the date and mint.

Reverse : Arabic inscriptions.

I have not identified the under type with certainty, but I suspect it is a coin of his father, Tahmasp.
