Thanks Oesho, mint on the 2nd coin is not fully on the flan and on 3rd coin mint is completely off the flan but can you guess the mint by looking at the patterns of the coin or is it not possible?

Coin no.2 is Lahore, Dar al-Sultanat
Typical for the coins of Lahore is the mark of a 'heart-shape' symbol with three dots above.
The date is AH987.

Coin no. 3 is most likely Ahmadabad.
The date seems to be AH994. The last digit is not very clear, but it doesn't look like a 2.
