If I am not mistaken the mint mark is the "S" shaped character?

Actually, mint names are written out. You can find a list in most KM catalogues. To locate the name, it helps to remember ضرب which is usually followed by a mint name or an indication of a mint. Remember that Arabic is written from right to left.

The S character is the' K' part of the word Akbarabad, it can also be written in a different way

Goron and Dr. Prudhomme read the mint name as 'Akbarabad' too. Probably the alphabets are alif, kaf, ba, ra, alif, ba, alif, dal.
