863 or 864? Or maybe 861?

In an attempt to get the how far back can we go sixth edition thread back and running with the ever elusive 1460 CE coin, I've been looking at many Indian Islamic coins because I've found they are often sold as undated when the date is obviously visible in the sale pictures.

Well I don;t know this type, but if we are looking at the numerals at 6:00-8:00 in the first photo, I agree it looks like 64 (or possibly 63 since these are easily confused except by experts, WHICH I AM NOT )

What does/did the seller say?

This appears to be a billon tanka of the Sultans of Jaunpur, Husain Shah, GG J27. I read the date at about 7-8 o'clock on the first photo as AH 863. GG says these were made from AH 862-916.

This is a nice example. Should have a weight of 9.7-10.3 g.

Thanks for the confirmation!

Am I correct that I should be looking for a 4 as in the picture below (AH 714?)

The hijri year 864 began on 28 October 1459 and ended on 15 0ctober 1460. So while AH 864 comes closest to a perfect correlation with AD 1460, coins dated AH 865 could conceivably have been minted in October, November or December 1460.
