On your 2nd coin, I see a date : 1082 , the other face looks better to Val. 176 than 177 ?

This 3rd coin gives us the solution to the puzzle  :)  !
it is of Herat and the date that I supposed to be 1082 is likely "1282" (what I took for a dot is a part of the leg of "2" with a shock); and then we can say that it's an afghan civic copper at time of Barakzaï.
