Nice addition to the thread. The bull on these already has degenerated to some sort of Caterpillar. On your specimen the Mu'izzi is still inscribed very neatly. I have some others where this also becomes less readable. I think the deteriorating cquality of the coins reflects the gradual downfall of the Ghaznavid empire at the time.
