CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gold Medallic 5 Ducats, 1929. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-65.
Fr-8; KMX-9; Novotny-II.A (RRR). Mintage: 787. By: Otakar Spaniel. Obverse: St. Wenceslas standing, head left, holding banner; Reverse: St. Wenceslas on horseback left, holding banner, accompanied by two angels. An elusive Gem, the present specimen demonstrates impressive and enchanting luster and wholesome application of the intricate details. Some rusty toning spots are seen throughout the surface, breaking the otherwise golden shimmer. The softest of contacting makes the grade, though altogether this example represents a high point for the collectors of Czechoslovakian medals.
