Looks to be a bigger flan than average?  unfortunate that it's part weakly struck.
Added interest is with the VS date visible on the Bull, non of my examples show it and neither does the G/G plate coin

Interesting posts you made !
Bit pressed for time, so won't start a detailed discussion now.
For now, here is one of mine. Not as good as yours, but does show some different flan parts.
The legend would make this fall under G&G D128 (Tye#404.12). The style however, is very different from the regular D128 types. It is much more similar to the earlier Iltutmish types. And it is certainly not common. I will be giving it a separate catalog number.

(AE 14mm, 3.07 gr)
