CZECHOSLOVAKIA. 10 Ducats, 1932. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-65.
Fr-4; KM-14; Novotny-19 (R). Mintage: 1,035. Separating itself from almost every other 20th Century Issue and harkening back to the days of Medieval Europe with its massive size and Ducat weight and fineness, this example leaves little to be desired on account its magnificent eye appeal. The generously sized flan portrays Wenceslas in his full regal adornments, with the intricate yet spare design elements carefully and nearly fully placed. Some light marking along with a wisp of central design softness accounts for the grade, though this is rather close to cherry picking the most minor of faults on an otherwise impeccable example. This lofty example is certain to find a place in the most premium of collections, where it will be hard to match the splendor and opulence of this piece.
