Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

It is to confirm... I read on your coin : "... mir Timur Gurkhan"  .. (and "Khald Allah Mulkh" at bottom)

Thank you Saro, I am glad you got the line before last. Could it be Sultan Mahmud Khan in the upper line? attached photo is for a different coin.

Unfortunately the 1st line is rubbed out, I would say (but I am not sure...) that on left we have the end of the word "sultan" and there is no room under it for a long name, "Mahmud" is quite short and possible  ???

Thank you Saro for your great help, yes it looks like the word "Sultan" at the end of upper line.
