    Saxony. Friedrich Christian gold Ducat 1763 AU Details (Cleaning) PCGS, Dresden mint, KM963.Fr-2869. A very scarce one-year type that features the armored bust of Friedrich Christian and crowned arms. This present offering displays luminous golden surfaces and flecks of subtle amber color within the open fields and the portrait of the King is particularly bold--perhaps even choice for the grade--with sharply-rendered facial characteristics and fully-defined detail across his mantle. The reverse is equally pleasing, with design illustrations that are essentially free of wear, surrounded by fields that are resoundingly clear and radiate with a substantial amount of glowing luster. Despite the details assignment, evidence of cleaning is essentially negligible and likely exists from a wipe that occurred long ago. Absolutely choice in hand and worthy of even the finest collections of rare German gold. Sold with an old merchant's envelope.
