UBS sale 84, lot 573
This specimen is lot 573 in UBS sale 84 (Basel, January 2010). The catalog description[1] noted,
"DEUTSCHLAND Kaiserreich, Anhalt, Herzogtum. Friedrich I. 1871-1904. 20 Mark 1875. Kl. Kr. Fast vorzüglich-vorzüglich." (German Empire, duchy of Anhalt, Frederick I, 1871-1904, 20 mark of 1875. Extremely fine).
This type was struck 1875 only and is rare. It is listed in the SCWC under "Anhalt-Dessau" but as the other branches of Anhalt, Anhalt-Bernberg and Anhalt-Cothen, had gone extinct by 1863, the title on the coin is simply "HERZOG V. ANHALT."

Recorded mintage: 25,000.

Specification: 7.96 g, .900 fine gold, .230 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: J. 17, KM 21, Fr-3748.
