    1545 Breslau Ducat

    Well-Preserved 16th Century Gold Piece

    Breslau. Balthasar of Promnitz gold Ducat 1545, Fr-476, F&S-2532, AU Details (Bent) NGC. Obv. Titles of Balthasar and arms. Rev. St. John standing, facing, with book and lamb in his left hand. An extremely rare and seldom offered type. NGC has given this a net grade because of the wavy flan. Actually, it is not unusual to see wavy flans in these very thin pre-1600 ducats. This example exhibits full, brilliant, mint luster with no traces of wear, or even slight rubbing on the high points. The surfaces are completely free of significant marks, and even with the wavy flan, we doubt you will see a nicer specimen of this elusive type.

    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.
