    Sublime 10 Ducat Preserved in Choice Mint State

    Ferdinand III gold 10 Ducat 1645 MS63 NGC, Vienna mint, KM926 (Rare), Fr-209, Horsky-Unl., Herinek-13. 34.64gm. Hans Jakob Stadler as mintmaster. Struck from Taler dies (cf. KM882). A stunning example for a type that seldom comes to market, and one that is virtually never encountered in such an exemplary uncirculated preservation. The conditionally discriminating collector who is accustomed to close inspection will be pleased to know that in searching for marks, scratches, and minor imperfections, there are essentially none, with only minimal, evenly scattered friction to account for the grade designation. The result, truly, is a coin that easily has the appearance of an even finer grade. The visual presentation is further amplified by a crisp strike that leaves Ferdinand's bust sharply outlined, as well as highly ornate, even throughout the most intricate features, with the reverse heraldic design no less stunning. Golden luster careens with graceful ease across the fields, sparkling within the eagle's feather details and in the lower-lying areas of the central shield, confirming what seems so obvious at face: namely, that locating a better example would be virtually impossible. As the sole certified example in NGC's census, and an utterly impressive one at that, this glorious representative is bound to encounter fierce bidder competition.

    From the Paramount Collection
