Denomination Ducat
Description Hildesheim. Jost Edmund von Brabeck gold Ducat 1694-HS, Fr-1322, Flour-635, MS62 NGC. Obv. Bust left with cap and long wig. Rev. Triple-crowned coat of arms divides the mintmaster's initials (H-S) and the date 16-94). An exceptional example of this great rarity from the Hildesheim diocese. The fully lustrous surfaces are free of notable flaws and the fields bright and reflective. The only example of this type that we can reference in the last 20 years is a flawed VF sold at auction by Westf?lische Auktionsgesellschaft (Auction 57, 12 September 2011, lot 449). That example was estimated at 1500 Euros and hammered at 5,750 Euros. This was approximately $7,900 for a rather pedestrian example. We doubt that a finer example exists than this truly amazing piece. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $23,500.00.
