Italy, Venice 1414-23 "Finest Known" Jesus Christ Book of Gospels NGC 67
Italy 1414-23 Ducat "Jesus Christ & Book of Gospel" NGC 67 Most Likely Finest Known! We’ve handled several Gold Ducats in Uncirculated condition, we even have a GEM 65 & 66, but we’ve Never Seen a Gold Ducat graded this high!!! Perhaps the most striking feature of this piece is the color of the gold, obviously attributing to it’s high karat content – it radiates a deep, at the same time, bright luster. The details are very Crisp and clear, both the Vignette and the Legends! Very Rarely seen is such a strongly struck and clear display of JESUS’ features, his Face, Beard and Crown! Also, his hand (holding the Book of Gospels) is also very detailed. Truly and all around Trophy Piece!!!
