Anyone know the result for the 'giant' 25 dinar Ilkhanid piece that came up for auction at Morton and Eden a couple of days back?

It's all written out in the original auction catalogue of November 9, 1987.

Many thanks to Oesho, who dug into his impressive files and came up with the pages from the auction catalogue referred to in reply #47 above. I am attaching the pictures from the catalogue describing the obverse.

Wonderful and thanks Peter.

I'm sure many of us don't have access to the auction catalogue of 1987 so this information is really helpful.
