||Bavaria. Karl Theodor gold Ducat 1780, KM263, Fr-250, UNC Details (Damaged) NGC. A classic and seldom offered three-year type struck from gold of the Danube with the reverse design depicting the river god resting on the riverbanks. The present appealing example has nearly full, prooflike reflectivity in the fields and only a touch of trivial striking incompleteness in the centers. Several marks to the right of the bust are evident, but fail to mar the design. All in all, despite some flaws, still a lovely coin.
