||Trier-Archbishopric. Kuno II von Falkenstein (1362-88) Goldgulden c.1386-88, Fr-3408, Trier Mint, MS63 NGC. CVnO ?R | ?PS TR?In, St. John standing facing with right hand raised and holding a scepter in the left / ? MOn? ? | ?T? TR? ? | ? V?R?n ?, arms of Trier-Minzenberg within trilobe with arms surrounding. This interesting specimen is not only very rare, it is also in truly exceptional condition. The strike is even with few areas of weakness in the legends, leaving the central devices sharp. There is ample luster throughout and very few surface abrasions. The trilobe reverse so common to the issues of Kuno's successor was issued only near the very end of his tenure at Trier and at Oberwesel. Our research yielded only one Oberwesel and no Trier minted examples sold at auction in the past decade. ?
