Denomination Ducat
Description Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel. Karl I gold Ducat 1738-B.I.D, KM904, Fr-716, AU58 NGC. Benefitting from a strong strike, the semi-mirrored reflectivity in the fields serves to attractively highlight the central design. Close inspection with a loupe reveals several wispy marks in the fields, but these blend rather impressively so as to not significantly deter the eye-appeal. A scarce type in any grade, this is often desired for the leaping horse on the reverse. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $1,997.50.
