Sincona sale 43, lot 2180
This specimen was lot 2180 in Sincona sale 43 (Zurich, October 2017), where it sold for 140 CHF (about US$167 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Hessen, Grossherzogtum, Ludwig III. 1848-1877 2 Mark 1877 H. Darmstadt. Schön-sehr schön. (Germany, grand duchy of Hesse, Louis III, 1848-77, two mark of 1877, Darmstadt mint. Fine-very fine.)"
Of the two major divisions of Hesse, Hesse-Cassel chose the wrong side in the Austro-Prussian war and found herself annexed. Hesse-Darmstadt survived to become the Grand Duchy of plain Hesse. This two mark was issued 1877 only and is scarce despite the substantial mintage. The Darmstadt mint closed in 1882.

Recorded mintage: 338,000.

Specification: 11.11 g, .900 fine silver, this specimen 10.89 g.

Catalog reference: J. 66; KM-355.
