Sincona sale 6, lot 589
This specimen was lot 589 in Sincona sale 6 (Zurich, May 2012), where it sold for 11,000 CHF (about US$13,536 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"DEUTSCHLAND Brandenburg-Preussen, 1417 Kurfürstentum, 1701 Königreich. Friedrich III. (I.), 1688-1713. Dukat 1691, Königsberg. Geharnischtes, belorbeertes Brustbild nach rechts. Rv. Wappen auf gekrönter Wappenkartusche mit Zweigen. Prägeschwäche. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Germany, electorate of Brandenburg, Frederick III, 1688-1713, ducat of 1691, Konigsberg mint. Obverse: armored, laureate bust to right; reverse: crowned oval arms. Weakly struck, very fine to extremely fine.)"
This type was struck 1691-1700 but all the mintages are tiny and this type is rare. Ducats struck after 1700 are listed under Prussia.

Recorded mintage: 400.
