1560-86 Salzburg 4 Ducats
Salzburg. Johann Jakob Khuen von Belasi gold 4 Ducats ND
(1560-86), Fr-630, Probszt-459, AU58 NGC. Obv. Three shields.
Rev. Two Saints seated, facing each other. An exceedingly rare
issue. Coins produced in the sixteenth century are typically crude

this example is an exceptional product from these rather basic
production methods. The rarity is unquestioned, as we can find no
records of this type. Salzburg, like many other Europen cities, was
a Bishopric from the Middle Ages through the early 1800's.
The Bishops' rule was quite firm in Salzburg, and in 1731 the
Protestants were ordered to recant their non-Catholic beliefs or be
banished from the city.

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.
