Shah Jahan rupee,AH 1060/RY 24, mint khambayat ?

Can't seem to find this mint in the KM list unless it's written in an unusual way, dated AH 1060

weight 11.44g    AR21

The ornament in the loop of "n" of Jahan is found later (Aurangzeb) for Lucknow mint,  a part of the mintname present may fit ?? (left side of obverse)
(a scarce mint for Shah Jahan if confirmed)

I think that the mint isn't Lukhnow but Khambayat (KHaNBaYT)

I think your right saro, It looks like it starts with K & ends with two dots for T, it's a mint I didn't already have unlike Lakhnow which I posted a while back
found the RY, 24 left image 5.oclock
