    Salzburg. Hieronymus gold Ducat 1782-M, KM452, Fr-887, AU Details (Removed from Jewelry) NGC. Desirable one-year type. A scarce commemorative issue that was struck for the 1200th anniversary of the archbishopric. The present specimen, likely kept as a religious adornment, has been made bright from a past polishing with a small cut on the rim at 1:00 that likely aided the removal of a mount. Interestingly, the same dies that were made to strike the ducats were also used to produce silver strikings.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
