Correct, in my opinion, except that the two final digits of the date are uncertain. The date might be 1664. This type was struck longer than KM indicates. I have seen 1665 on the net.

Off the flan on your coin are the mintmaster's initials TL below the neck. The letters stand for the highly colourful Tito Livio Burattini (the spelling of his name differs). He was master of the Warszaw mint at Ujazdów Castle and so noted that this type was known as boratynka, referring to his last name.

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