    Description

    Tuscany. Francesco I de Medici Piastra 1575 AU58 NGC, Dav-8385. Choice in all regards, this handsome issue displays the decorated bust of Francesco I showing only minor friction atop his features, and the superbly-illustrated reverse image of John the Baptist. Other than a bit of die clash above the Grand Duke's bust, the surfaces are resoundingly fresh--a miraculous feat for a coin of this size and age--and the fields are drenched in desirable, olive-gray patina, with original luster brightening from behind. Seldom offered in this preferred technical quality, and wholly-engaging as such.
