The great thing which makes your specimen even more scarce is that it has such a large part of the Iltutmish name on flan. Often it is difficult to distinguish this type from the very similar issue in the name of Qarlughid ruler Saif al-din al-Hasan Qarlugh.
In a previous thread (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,46275.0.html) i gave some reasons why the mint attribution to Multan is probably wrong.
