Yes there are a few ways and perhaps another on the coins themselves at times.

Very good coin, Khambayat was a very rich port of its time. Today its called Khambhat.
On his first coins from Khambayat, Shah Alam replaced the word Maimanate with Zafar,which stands for Victory.
Blessed by the Masters.

I wonder why it is called as Khambayat while the same is written as Kanbayaat over the coin.
