Poland 1621-SA 100 ducats Fr-72
This specimen was struck in 1621 for Sigismund III (1587-1632), former king of Sweden who resigned his crown and converted to Catholicism to seize the throne of Poland. It is accompanied ninety, sixty, sixty, fifty and forty ducats, all rare. We had thought these images came from the Eliasberg sale but we can't find it therein.
