    Maximilian I (1493-1519) Guldiner ND (1504-1506) AU50 NGC, Hall mint, Dav-8003, Voglhuber-9 var. (barred P), Schulten-4443. By Benedickt Burkhart. A piece that will make even the most seasoned taler collector stop and awe, the early 16th-century guldiners of Austria in general, and of Maximilian I in particular, attract a level of excitement that is palpable. Presently the highest certified of only three seen by NGC, this marvelous specimen is possessed of an old-world cabinet patina that perfectly complements its Renaissance-era artistry, the peripheral elements struck without weakness, allowing full legibility of the legends. Commonly designated as a Königsguldiner as Maximilian had not yet accepted the imperial title, the dies for this piece were cut by Benedickt Burkhardt sometime before 1508--Voglhuber dating the issue between 1486 and 1493, though Schulten postulated 1504-1506--when he was replaced by Ulrich Ursental, who slightly refined the style of Burkhart's already excellent engraving. Simply a superb piece and quite literally a work of art.
