"1619 Leopold Ducat Among the Finest Known Archduke Leopold gold Ducat ND (1619)-CO, Hall mint, UNC Details (Surface Hairlines) NGC. A ducat of great rarity, this example is the finest we could find in our research. The surfaces have very unfortunately been scratched throughout the fields. Without a glass, the scratches appear almost as die-polishing lines. This ducat was issued upon Leopold's inheritance of Further Austria and the Tirol after the death of Archduke Maximilian. This great rarity will demand a strong bid."
