    Description

    Sardinia. Vittorio Emanuele I 5 Lire 1816 (Eagle)-L MS64 NGC, Turin mint, KM113, Dav-133, Pag-10. The elusive first year of this seldom-seen type, preserved in essentially unheard of condition, the surfaces retaining seemingly unmatched originality that showcases pinpoint design details, only the most inconsequential instances of contact and a remarkable palette of tone that is composed of silver and olive in the open areas and darkens around the raised surfaces to further embolden the motifs. For the sake of completeness, we note a small planchet inclusion in the upper left portion of the shield on the reverse, but its presence is absolutely trivial on the whole. Truly a magnificent coin!...and one that could quite possibly shoot right past our estimate range, as it's difficult to predict when the next opportunity to acquire another example of this date in this immense quality will come along.
