||Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel. Ludwig Rudolph gold Ducat 1733, KM843, Fr-683, AU58 NGC. A scarce and popular one-year type with the unusual bust style of Ludwig Rudolph on the obverse and an iconic image of the "wildman" holding a tree and supporting the crowned arms of the region on the reverse. Rather flashy for the grade and admirably struck, with detail that remains sharp and full down to the minute intricacies within the arms. A slight waviness runs diagonally through the flan, but appears to be entirely natural.
Realized $4,112.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
