Denomination Riksdaler
Mint Mark OL
Description Carl XIII Riksdaler 1818-OL, KM588, SM-16, MS64 NGC. A fully mint state example with somewhat mottled patina and a nicely balanced strike on both sides. The surfaces are remarkable in that there are no adjustment marks to the flan, a defect which almost always plagues this issue. The royal title for this type was altered in 1814 to include "NORR" which represented Sweden's acquisition of Norway following the Napoleonic Wars. Realized $4,406.25.
