I can't place this one for sure, it looks like the Ala-ud-din, Qunduz type, horse head to the left  3.01g

There is Arab text between the front legs of the horse and the banner. Also in your right picture there is an ornamented edge.
So Bamiyan (Tye#237) instead of Qunduz i would think.

Looks to be that, the far right of the reverse legend looks the same or very similar

Here is another type with a larger flan,  4.35g

seems to be Tye 243 although the Arabic word between the flag & front legs doesn't match any of the types pictured in Tye

I have several of these, both with the writing style like in the book as in the style of your coin. Your coins does seem to miss the middle character however. I think the intended text on all is the same and these are just minor variations.
