Lorraine. Charles IV Teston 1638 AU58+ NGC, Romarti mint, KM56 (Karl III), de Saulcy-Plate XXVII, 4. 8.82gm. A veritably incredible specimen, this only-certified example of the type blooms with a quality that is likely to remain unparalleled for many years to come. The strike is sharp and exacting, leaving not a curl unnoted or a rivet in the duke's armor undefined, with the surfaces fully in bloom with satiny luster. A small, curved mint-made clip is noted at 6 o'clock, but otherwise very little is left to be desired, and a Mint State designation seems very nearly in order.
