Hmm,

Perhaps the date needs checking.

I have a feeling that the second 3 folks are seeing is part of the reverse legend and the third part of the date can only be seen by part to the right of the first 3.

Denomination: Bahloli
Mint: Dar al-Zarb Khita Mutabarak - Jaunpur
Year: 93(9?)
Composition: Copper
Diameter: 17.5 mm
Thickness: 5 mm
Weight: 13 gr.

Here is the picture with I am comparing my coin.
