Kunker sale 263, lot 1877
This specimen was lot 1877 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €900 (about US$1,163 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"NEAPEL UND SIZILIEN Karl VI. von Österreich (Karl III. von Spanien), 1707-1734. Ducato 1715, Neapel. Attraktives Exemplar mit feiner Patina, fast vorzüglich. (kingdom of Naples and Sicily, Charles VI of Austria, 1707-34, ducat of 1715, Naples mint. Attractive example with nice toning, choice extremely fine.)"
Charles II, the last Hapsburg king of Spain, was also king of Naples and Sicily. After his death the area passed out of the hands of the Spanish crown, only to be reconquered by them in the 1730's. In the interim, Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor 1711-40, was also king of Naples 1707-34. This is the only coin the SCWC lists for his rule.
