A good one & a ruler missing from my collection ( I think)  I see that none of the coins bear the name of Khidr Khan which is surprising seeing as he seemingly reigned for 7 years

Though He reigned for 7 years but He never assumed an independent position in all respect. As a mark of the recognition of the suzerainity  of the mongols, The name of the Mongol Ruler Shah Rukh was recited in khutba, but as an interesting innovation , the name of Khizr Khan was also attached to it. But interestingly neither his nor Mongol Rulers name was inscribed on the coins and the name of Tughlaq Suktan continued on the currency. Nelson Wright Observes "They prefer to maintain types of coins that had become popular in the recent past, merely altering dates on them"

It does look like it to me also, if it were 817 it would mean that the 8 was partly obscuring the 1 which seems unlikely

Thanks Tariq and capnbirdseye. Looking that way I too get suspicious. 777 looks a fairly strong possibility. I had given it a thought but went about the other way. May be wrong.
