The date on this one is clear - 1015. A posthumous issue in name of Akbar. All these Mahmudis are dated but often the date is off the flan.

Sorry, I was really just copying my catalogue entry for my example, below, where the date is just off at the lower right. I didn't expect the date to be at 90 degrees :-[

Alan, I am somehow not able to save the image of your coin on my laptop. The fag end of the date is seen on your coin too ..... Right image at about 5 O'clock.The date on the Mahmudi's is always at that point. Some of these Mahmudi's have a symbol (other than the Peacock feather) at 9 O'clock also.
