Künker sale 294, lot 3780
This specimen was lot 3780 in Künker sale 294 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €1,925 (about US$2,595 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"WÜRTTEMBERG, KONIGREICH, Wilhelm I. 1816-1864. 5 Gulden 1825. GOLD. Vorzüglich-Stempelglanz. (kingdom of Wurttemberg, William I, 1816-64, five gulden of 1825. Extremely fine to uncirculated.)"
Friedberg lumps all the five gulden of this ruler under one catalog number but the SCWC notes two types for 1825. The first type (KM 562) features considerably more hair on the king's scalp than is shown here (KM 563). See the similar ten gulden (Fr-3612) of 1824. Both are scarce but KM 562 is rare.

Recorded mintage: 1,443 of KM 562 and 5,956 of KM 563.

Specification: 3.42 g, .904 fine gold, this specimen 3.34 g.

Catalog reference: KM 563, Divo/S. 229; Fr-3613; Schl. 916.
