CZECHOSLOVAKIA. 10 Ducats, 1951. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-64.
Fr-4; KM-14; Novotny-54 (RRR). Mintage: 100. In close competition with the 1937 and 1938 issue of the same type for the title of RAREST of Czechoslovakian issues, this phenomenal piece is exemplary in nearly every regard. Nearly Gem, the surfaces alight with the soft glow of gold, and a light frostiness that is scarcely interrupted by contact or friction. Some very minor marks likely account for the grade, though this piece really does illustrate a premium for the grade example. Many die lines can be seen, highlighting how much care was taken to recreate the pre-war pieces. More marvel than coin, this brilliant stunner is certain to appeal to any collector of major RARITIES, as only the most advanced can claim that they own an example.
