The date is well 987 (digits + letters) and the mint epithet is "Dogaon dar-us-salam" (or dar al-islam for Valentine, the script is the same)

If I understand you correctly, there is no way to distinguish dar-us-salam from dar-el-islam. This is important to me because the coins of Atcheh are thought to say dar-us-salam. You cannot even see the difference between "us" and "el"?

Dear Peter, I was not at all clear, and you are right : if the word "islam" may give "aslam, uslam or islam", "dar-us-salam" is not written like "dar-al-islam; the script is not the same but "quite" the same and Valentine translated the dogaon's epithet as "dar al-islam".
