This specimen was lot 1314 in Jean Elsen sale 123 (Brussels, December 2014), where it sold for €550 (about US$799 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,

Mooie patina. bijna FDC. (Netherlands, province of Overijssel, silver gulden of 1795.

This type was issued by the various provinces of the Netherlands 1694-1794 and was tariffed at twenty stuivers. The SCWC does not list any gulden for Overijssel after 1749. Despite the long run of issue and the substantial mintage, it is not often seen at American coin shows.
