Denomination Ducat
Description Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel. Ludwig Rudolf Harz-gold Ducat 1734-S, KM828, Fr-667, AU55 NGC. The grade is defined more by moderate handling over the ages, that has left the surfaces a tad bright, than surface wear. Essentially all the original detail remains, with a touch of striking weakness evident in Ludwig Rudolf's highest hair curls. An issue that was struck from gold mined at the Harz Mountain with the identifying Latin inscription "EX AUR HERC INF", at the base of the reverse design. A very rare type as a search of archived data has resulted in no recorded sales for the type. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
