Elichpur. Rulers name is mostly off flan but likely Muhammad or Ahmed Shah. With the coin in hand can you spot the date?

Since there are no takers, I'll bite. In view of the rulers you mention, the date should be between 1131 and 1167. In the boxes, I read 115, so the date is 115x and the ruler is Muhammad Shah.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
