Very nice coin with clear detail, well photographed. Your overlay shows the missing letters or parts of letters. I am wondering about the denomination of the coin. It is so strange, could it not be a lightweight tanka, in particular because, as you note, Md bin Firuz had to fight to become ruler?

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