Description Saxony. Johann Georg II gold 1/2 Ducat 1660, KM483, Fr-2732, AU58 NGC. A very rare fraction in an uncommonly nice grade. Most examples have a very worn and flattened face of the elector on the obverse, but this example is unusual in that you can actually make out most of the details, even going so far as to be able to see the actual curls in the hair of the elector. This piece that is well above average for the type. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $2,585.00.
