德国雷根斯堡约瑟夫一世10杜卡斯特 NGC XF-Details
GERMANY. Regensburg. 10 Ducats, (1705-11). Joseph I. NGC EF Details--Mount Removed. Fr-2484; KM-227. Purported mintage: 27, though it is believed that there are only 2 known. Heart-shaped city Arms in elaborate garlanded frame, "MONETA * REIPVBLICAE * RATISBONENSIS *"; Reverse: Imperial crown over nimbate double eagle, orb between the heads, large-letter title "* IOSEPHVS * D. G * ROM. IMP. SEMP. AVG.". A boldly struck massive early 18th century gold issue displaying an attractive imperial motif with good definition of the details. Evidence of being removed from jewelry long ago, but not immediately noticeable blending with the rest of the coin. The golden surfaces display rich mottled patina with tantalizing hints of paler red.emJoseph was a sensible and conciliatory ruler whose great military commander Prince Eugene of Savoy inflicted defeats on the French King Louis XIV. His reign was brief but generally successful before his death of smallpox in April 1711. The loyal Free City of Regensburg created this sumptuous tribute, a coin whose face value represented a startling amount of money when it was struck and was almost certainly intended for presentation to some very high dignitary./em Ex: Stacks Auction January 14, 2008, Lot # 2750.Ex: Auktionshaus Meister & Sonntag Auction # 2 September 21, 2004, Lot # 2365.Ex: UBS Gold & Numismatics Auction # 53 January 29, 2002, Lot # 1029.
