Sincona sale 47, lot 1276
This specimen was lot 1276 in Sincona sale 47 (Zurich, May 2018), where it sold for 1,200 CHF (about US$1,440 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"DENMARK, Christian IV. 1588-1648. 2 Kroner 1618, Kopenhagen. Gutes sehr schön. Kleine Kratzer und Graffito auf dem Avers. (kingdom of Denmark, Christian IV, 1588-1648, two kroner of 1618, Copenhagen mint. Good very fine, Small scratches and graffito on obverse.)"
This type was struck 1618-19 in several varieties (including Dav-3516A, -3516B, -3516C). It is scarce. Danish crowns of the seventeenth century range from the scarce to the obscenely rare. Either they were melted extensively or the poverty of the king prevented large issues or both.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 37.82 g, .859 fine silver, this specimen 37.57 g.
