Sincona sale 38, lot 1133
This specimen was lot 1133 in Sincona sale 38 (Zurich, May 2017), where it sold for 800 CHF (about US$960 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Ferdinand Maria, 1651-1679 Goldgulden 1676. München. Gutes sehr schön. Etwas dezentriert und kl. Kratzer im Av. (Germany, electorate of Bavaria, Ferdinand Maria, 1651-79, gold gulden of 1676, Munich mint. Good very fine, Slightly off-center and small scratch on obverse.)"
This type was struck 1674-79 and tho not cheap, is more available than other Bavarian ducats of the seventeenth century. The goldgulden was generally slightly lighter and lower in fineness than a traditional ducat, tho not reflected in the specification listed in the SCWC.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.50 grams. .986 fine gold, this specimen 3.27 g.

Catalog reference: KM 325, Witt. 1383. Hahn 166. Fr-210.
