Not just a nice strike, biblap. Date and regnal year are both on the coin. Name of ruler and mint are known. Excellent patina, that contrasts lower and raised part. Minimal chop marks. This is the sort of coin coin lovers choose. Congratulations.

AH 1052, regnal year 17  another coin of biplaps where the regnal year is out of sync as it should be 15 or 16 unless perhaps the date is 1053 with a poorly engraved 3?

Could the year be 1054?

My guess is that the engraver ran out of space & could not complete the number so it could be a 3 or 4 using that logic
