help with 2 identifications please

hello,

I need help in identifying these two coins (images attached).
I was told the big thick coin is from golconda sultanate (Hyderabad? Deccan, India.) but not sure about its origins or mint. Very crude coin as it looks. The second small coin, I was told that it's a Tanjavur Maratha coin (token?) south India. Appreciate any thoughts or info on these.

I think the top coin, the thick one is a Dam/Damri coin from the Mughal period. Possibly Akbar
