Denomination Ducat
Description Mainz-Archbishopric. Emeric Josef gold Ducat 1771-DF, KM371, Fr-1680, MS61 NGC. Three-year type. A glassy-gold appearance around the protected areas benefits the eye-appeal with central devices that are well defined, but just short of fully struck. While the grade is appropriate, the appearance is certainly high end, with very few actual marks, and only blended handling that accounts for the grade. This scarce ducat carries the initials of mint-master Damian Fritsch on the reverse. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $3,290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
