Künker sale 294, lot 3636
This specimen was lot 3636 in Künker sale 294 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"HAMBURG, STADT, Goldgulden o. J. (1493-1508), mit Titel Maximilians I. als König. GOLD. RR Min. gewellt, kl. Fassungsspur, sehr schön. (Germany, city of Hamburg, undated goldgulden, struck in the name of Maximilian I as king. Rare, minor bend, corrosion spots, very fine.)"
This is the third gold coin noted for this Hanseatic city which today still dominates the North Sea coast of Germany. It is scarcer than the first two (Fr-1084 and Fr-1085). St. Peter would be featured on the goldgulden of Hamburg until the seventeenth century.
