    Thanks! LaCointessa:) and Michael K:)

    Nice thing about that coin (I have been wanting a better quality ex. for past 5 years) This one went way under estimate. Maybe all the "big spenders" where concentrating on the Triton event.

    I had a similar looking Hungarian piece. I see yours is in TPG
    plastic. Would you share the grade?

    Certainly, its MS-62 NGC
    On that Triton Koln 1438 dated coin, it went fairly cheap. I am waiting for a MS one hopefully one day.

    They were tough on that, I would have thought at least
    64 and 65 would not have surprised me at all. I would have
    bid on that 1438 but I was saving my budget for another coin.
    MS graded 1436-1438 gold guldens are rare as hens teeth
    and snake hips. Bob Levinson has a few pictured in his
    2nd edition of his " The Early Dated Coins of Europe 1234-1500"
    book. I would say one might cost you well North of $5000.

    Yeah, I am really surprised that no one in Koln would have put some MS examples aside in his collection. I would have.....
