Kampen 1648 daalder Dav-4879
This specimen was lot 1308 in Stack's Bowers ANA auction (Chicago, August 2014), where it did not sell. The catalog description noted, "NETHERLANDS. Overijssel. Kampen. Daalder (48 Stuivers), 1648. NGC MS-61. Lily mintmark. Of typical crude manufacture. Flat struck in centers with bold full legends. Slightly double struck. With luster in the protected areas." "Lion" daalders were struck in Kampen and other Dutch provinces until 1697 but are seldom seen. This specimen, lustrous but completely lacking in detail, is typical for this type. Simultaneous with the Lion daalder (48 stuivers) was the "prince" daalder (40 stuivers), the silver ducat (also 48 stuivers), the three gulden (60 stuivers) and the ducaton (silver rider). The catalog does not explain why so many different large silver coins were felt to be necessary.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Specification: 27.68 g, .750 fine silver.
