I think you got the right area, but the wrong ruler. The word Khokand is clear. MWI is dated 1287 on both sides. Mine (attached) is dated 1285 on both sides. I think I see 85 at 9 o'clock on your first picture, but I am not sure of the 5. No sign of a date on the second picture, though the area where it should be is clear  Both areas should be visible on your coin. Moreover, I can make the text match on your second picture only.

Yes : "Muhammad Sultan / Sayyid / Bahadur Khan" in 3 lines, from top to bottom
it is similar to this one .

If only I had a copy of Album's coin checklist. Oh, wait! My wish is granted! Thank you again, and thanks to all of your for the helpful input.

Therefore, yours is dated 1280 On the central line at 9 o'clock and a little bit to the right.
