This specimen was lot 1385 in Jean Elsen sale 108 (Brussels, March 2011) where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"NEDERLAND, BERGH, Graafschap, Willem IV (1546-1586), AR daalder, 1577, Dieren. Mmt: kelk. Droit : Geharnast bb. radié met staf, tussen jaartal. Revers : Gekwartierd wapen gedekt door twee helmen. Zeldzaam. Zeer Fraai (County of Bergh, William IV (1546-86), silver daalder of 1577. Obverse: armored bust with staff divides date; reverse: quartered arms with two helmets. Scarce, 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 26,75 g.

Catalog reference: Delm., 594; Davenport-8595; CNM 2.06.32.
