    1767 Adolf Frederik Medal

    A Nearly 250 Year Pedigree

    Adolf Fredrik gold Medal (7 Ducats) 1767-DF, Hildebrand II, page 112 number 44, MS65 NGC. 20.83gm. Fully brilliant. An extremely rare gold medal commissioned personally by the King to celebrate the recovery of the Queen from her illness. The dies were executed by C. G. Fehrman. This piece was first acquired by the Grand Duke of Oldenburg in 1780 from his relative, Peter Friedrich, who was visiting his cousin, King Gustav III, in Stockholm. The collection remained intact until it was sold in 1924 at H. Riechmann & Company and eventually passed through the holdings of "Col." Green and Virgil Brand. Possibly unique with an impressive pedigree.

    Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.

    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.
