Is it Arabic numeral "2" seen below "shah" and above the back of the horse on your coin? I have another one that has something like a numeral. I shall post a pic soon.

I am not really convinced it could be a 2, but i have no other really good alternative.

Posting the coin with something that looks like "12". It looks very much like the symbol on the coin that Anthony provide link to.

Agree, noticed this on more coins. I have not yet found any literature which gives a satisfactory interpretation or transcription for this.
