Another good find, this is a Tanka struck by Tughluq during his occupation of parts of Bengal, Iqlim Lakhnauti mint

I now have three known mints of Tughluq in Bengal including the incredibly rare Sunargoan mint

Forgive my ignorance, but can you indicate where the mintname is located in the legend ?

Stan Goron identified it for me, it's another chance purchase I made in the attempt to find Tughluq in Dehli mint Iqlim Tughluqpur 'urf Tirhut

The first part of the mint is very clear if i'm reading it right  :P Iqlim  comparing to the one on zeno I can see the bottom of the other word.

The photo below is courtesy of zeno & shows the full mint down the r/hand side, date 731 on the left & below

I have to admit that I can't make out Lakhnauti on the zeno coin at all other than the ti at the end

Difficult! I surrender as truly your marked area reads Iqlim. But later part is difficult.
