Previously unknown Netherlands Holland Gold Ducat



For my first entry in the journal I'd like to show something I very recently discovered. I bought a 1612 Netherlands Holland gold ducat from a nearby collector who advertised it online. The price was right, so I picked it up. On careful analysis, though, I realized the coin is an overdate variety that I could not find anywhere, a 1612/1. I sent pictures to Dariusz Jasek, the Polish author of the award-winning "Gold Ducats of the Netherlands, Vol. 1" and after searching through his 30,000-record database, he confirmed it is the discovery piece of a previously unknown overdate variety. He wants to include it in his upcoming Vol 2. Very cool news. NGC has also updated the slab to recognize it as an overdate.

Well spotted and great to get it graded as such - congratulations!

Heh, I have practice, darn near went blind spotting thirty+ 1995 1c Doubled Dies in bank bags of pennies way back when. Now it's the first thing I look for. (:
