    Brilliant Choice Mint State Bern 4 Ducat

    Bern. City gold 4 Ducat 1798 MS63 PCGS, KM155.2, Fr-177, HMZ-2-209l, Divo-473b. A type that can hardly be said to occur with any regularity in Choice Mint State, when it becomes available at all. Indeed, even a quick turn of the wrist reveals glassy golden luster that rolls over the fields to give the piece nearly a Prooflike finish. Bound in its designation by only the most trivial evidence of contact, to date this specimen ranks as one of just four examples seen across NGC and PCGS combined to have been awarded with this peak grade, and is perhaps even more notable as a denomination missing from our recent sale of the Paramount Collection. A coin which genuinely offers few grounds for complaint, and the scarcer of just two dates for which this 4 Ducat is available.

    Estimate: $35,000 - $45,000.
