This specimen was lot 1151 in Jean Elsen sale 122 (Brussels, September 2014), where it sold for €180 (about US$276 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"NEDERLAND, BERGH, Graafschap, Willem IV (1546-1586), AR Sint Oswalddaalder van 30 stuiver, z.j. Mmt. kruis. Droit: Klimmende leeuw l. met het wapen van Bergh.

Obverse: lion rampant holding arms of Bergh; reverse: crowned bust of St. Oswald divides value. Fine to very fine.)"
The count of Bergh (or s'Heerenberg) issued daalders and other silver coins in the fifteenth century before being absorbed into Gelderland, in which province the town still remains. We have filed this coin under Gelderland as the coinage of Bergh is too scanty to warrant its own page.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 23,52 g.

Catalog reference: Delm., 577; Dav-8583; CNM 2.06.14.
