Deventer 1663 daalder Dav-4875
This specimen was lot 24491 in Stack's Bowers NYINC sale (New York, January 2018), where it sold for $384. The catalog description noted, "NETHERLANDS. Deventer. Lion Daalder, 1663. ICG VF-35." This type is noted for 1662-64, with other Deventer lion daalders known dated 1640, 1664-68, 1684-91 and 1698. 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: 38,000.
Specification: 27.68 g, .750 fine silver.
Catalog reference: Dav-4875, KM-63.1.
