Great to see how you identified the trio. Compliments! Excellent coin for type. Almost all of the die made it on the coin. The three coins will be a fine addition to the index, helping future users, but they also provide insight into the reach and staying power of the Timurids, a dynasty forgotten in Western European school curriculums.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
