Excellent coin. I am still waiting for one.
This is Rahman type 103. There is another similar variety for AH936, with the same legend, having a double line in the centre of the obverse (second image).

Which one is "better" is not important. Pleasure is important. This second one confirms that you were right in your graphical analysis. The decoration at 12 o'clock is repeated upside down at 6 o'clock, so now we have a more complete picture of the die.
