With your transcription you make it look so easy Saro.
If i know what is written i can distinguish the different parts. But especially the obverse legend is quite a hurdle. The Persian calligraphy looks elegant, but i would imagine that they could at least have written the name of the sultan clearly for us mere mortals  >:( ;)
