CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Bronze Ducat Essai (Pattern), 1923. Paris Mint. PCGS SPECIMEN-55.
KM-Unlisted; Novotny-Unlisted. Mintage: 20. By: Josef Šejnost. An EXTREMELY RARE Essai produced by the Paris Mint, this fascinating and highly desired pattern displays a rejected Ducat design that features a full standing portraiture of St. Wenceslas. Light evidence of handling and even circulation are seen, though no general effacement of details is present. Though called a bronze pattern, this piece displays more of a brassy color, with darker surface coloration. As a problem free example of the type, this piece leaves very little to be desired despite the light circulation. To view all items from the Augustana Collection, click here.

From the Augustana Collection.

Estimate: $5000 - $10000
