Kunker sale 264, lot 3858
This specimen was lot 3858 in Künker sale 264 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €1,200 (about US$1,550 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BRAUNSCHWEIG Wilhelm, 1830-1884. 20 Mark 1875. Winz. Randfehler, fast vorzüglich. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick, William, 1830-84, twenty mark of 1875, minor rim bumps, choice extremely fine.)"
Tho the mintage is substantial, this one year type is rather scarce. It is the only gold coin of the Empire issued for this locale, which survived the annexation of the surrounding kingdom of Hannover in 1866.

Recorded mintage: 100,000.

Specification: 7.96 g, .900 fine gold.

Catalog reference: J. 203. KM 1160, Fr-3775.
