    Single Finest Certified "Fontana di Santa Maria" Quadrupla

    Papal States. Innocent XII gold Quadrupla (4 Scudi d'Oro) Anno IIII (1694) MS62+ NGC, Rome mint, KM617, Fr-174, Munt-49/1, B-2211. 13.40gm. By P.P. Borner of Luzern. A simply incredible one-year type, of which only a handful are thought to survive, with this being the single finest certified example seen by either of the major grading services. One of just two gold quadrupla designs produced during Innocent's pontificate, the piece at hand commemorates the rebuilding of the Fountain of Santa Maria in Trastevere, said to be the oldest fountain in Rome, by the pope's agent Carlo Fontana. Impressively original with pinpoint precision, and only the fourth specimen to cross the auction block in the past several decades.
