Nice combination of your photos and overlay !
The corrosion pits and green spots seem to be a witness of decreasing silver purity at the time. The calligraphy is nicely preserved.

Thanks all! With the death of old sultan Firoz Shah Tughlaq, started a civil war between different fractions of Tughlaq clans. Hence tax collection must suffered that time causing devaluation of currency. From that time, the BI tanka became more and more coppery until Sher Shah abolished it altogether.
Thanks,
