In addition, it is to notice that the mintname "Delhi" is in fact written on coins "DHeLI"

Thanks. I had not been able to figure that out.
Is the "DheLI" on the bottom line of the bottom image?

Exact, the mintname is well present at bottom of the second scan with just the end cut ( the "i" of "Dheli")
