On the lower coin, I think that the date in letters could be read as 984, "sanah nuhsad (wa) hashtad (wa cha)ha(r)" .

The last digit reads as 'noh' = 9.
So the complete date is 989

Dear Oesho, Thank you. Is it possible to read the date on the top coin?

A bit difficult. nohsad wa navad wa ...??? The last digit is rather problematical. With much reservation I may read it as a 9, so perhaps 999.

Adding the images of the coin after cleaning. Can the date be now read more clearly on the lower coin? The mint marks on both coins are different. Once again the lower one looks like what were found on Malwa coins.

AH 999(?)


AH 989.

After cleaning, and on new pictures,  the date of the 1st is "fi sanah nuhsad wa nawad wa chahar" = 994
 the upper word looks to me to be "chahar", in addition it seems that there is a cut character at 12 o'clock?

On the 2nd the date is well confirmed as : 989
