Agreed on the date. Common or not is unimportant. The importance of your coin is how the patina is highlighting the design. Nice!

Attribution correct. Certain mints may be common, but the importance lies in the information contained. This coin shows a fair part of the mint, as well as the full date in digits and writing.

Did I interpret correctly? The text above the date is supposed to be the date in words, but I don't yet know how or what to read there.
Please correct my mistakes.

Is this also Narnol, perhaps with the Narnol stylized differently? Or is there insufficient mintname to tell...?
Can the date beyond 9 be read?
