The undertype is an Iranian 2 shahi/ mahmudi of Huwayzia, of Suleiman I, 1666-1694.

I don't have a nice one of these, but attached is an image of one of 1089 H (1678)

The date will be under the cross on your piece and therefore completely obliterated I'm afraid.

I am very much thanked for the received message. The informations are precious so they complete the classification of the coins of the Portuguese Indian.
