    Exceptional City View 5 Ducat

    Bavaria. Maximilian I gold 5 Ducat 1640 MS63 NGC, Munich mint, KM268, Fr-196. Variety with date above. Commemorating the completion of new fortifications around Munich. Obv. Maximilian standing slightly right, fully clad in armor, holding scepter and resting hand upon orb set upon altar to right; all within ornate hallway. Rev. Veduta of Munich within the fortifications; above, the Madonna seated facing among the clouds, holding Holy Infant and scepter; cherub to left and right. Attractively rendered, conveying a satisfying sharpness down to even the smaller details in the Elector's armor and surroundings, as well as clearly outlined and uniformly struck legends. A slight haze appears around the detailing, which upon closer inspection reveals itself a consequence of fine die polish, a feature that results in a rather refined aesthetic appeal, with a distinctive golden glimmer drawing the eye with equal attention and excitement to the fields.
