||Papal States. Leo X gold 2 Fiorini di Camera ND (1513-21), Rome mint, Fr-45, Berman-630, MS62 NGC. Rome Mint. A somewhat crudely produced issue with distinctly pebbly surfaces and a strike that, while nearly fully imparted, gives the devices an evenly rounded appearance. Closer inspection reveals only very minor instances of handling, with the matte-like texture blending nearly all instances of such into the coin's fabric. A considerable opportunity for the Italian specialist, as this rare "doppio" scarcely appears on the market; the last example we have traced hammered at 4,600 Euros in 2002.
Realized $7,050.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
