Deventer 1662 silver ducat rev JElsen 106-952.jpg
Deventer in 1648
This specimen was lot 952 in Jean Elsen sale 106 (Brussels, September 2010), where it sold for 300 euro. The catalog description[1] noted,
"NEDERLAND, DEVENTER, Stad, AR zilveren dukaat, 1662, Muntmeesterteken: negerhoofd. Droit : Staande ridder naar radié met zwaard en stadswapen. Revers : Gekroond Generaliteitswapen. Klein defect aan de rand. Zeer Fraai à Prachtig." (city of Deventer, silver ducat of 1662, Negro head mintmark. Obverse: standing knight with sword holds provincial arms; reverse: crowned arms. Small planchet defect, Very Fine to Extremely Fine.)
This type is noted for 1662-66. It is not priced higher than contemporary German thalers (the Netherlands left the Empire in 1648) but as it normally comes wretchedly struck, a VF-XF example like that shown here is equivalent to a VG-F thaler from Brunswick or Saxony.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 28,06g.

Catalog reference: Verk.-149, 2; Delm.-990, Davenport-4916, KM 64.1.
