Sweden 1758 daler
This specimen was lot 35366 in Ponterio sale 177 (Chicago, August 2013), where it sold for $940. The catalog description noted, "SWEDEN. 1 Daler Plate Money, 1758. Adolf Frederick (1751-71). Central stamp near complete, the corner stamps all complete and bold. Partly rough surfaces due to minor corrosion. Some old verdigris clings to the surface, especially on the stamps, otherwise EXTREMELY FINE. Lyman H. Low." In the pre-reform Swedish coinage, 8 öre = 1 mark and 96 öre = 1 riksdaler. This type was issued 1751-59 and is a rather scarce one daler plate. Millions were made but most were melted down to make other copper or bronze objects.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
