A Dam of Awadh with the epithet, Dar al Khilafat, Khitta. Date is AH 977 or 978. The reverse shows a bit of the Nasir al Din Legend.

The last line on reverse is part of title "Nasir al dunya wa al-din".

Date written in Persian is "Nuhsad wa haftad ......." ie AH 97X.

Mr Shailen Bhandare on FB mentions that Most likely the last digit is 'Haft' or 'Hasht' as indicated by the horizontal stroke above 'Haftad' - so 977 or 978. 'Nasir al-Din' legend below the date.
