This specimen is lot 1663 in Jean Elsen sale 103 (Brussels, December 2009), where it sold for 1,550 euro. The catalog description[1] noted,
"AUTRICHE, République (1918- ), AV 100 couronnes, 1923, Seulement 617 p. frappées. Très Rare. Légère trace de bélière. Très Beau à Superbe" (Republic of Austria, gold 100 kronen, 1923, only 671 pieces struck. Very Rare, small trace of mounting, Very Fine to Extremely Fine).
