1622. Austria. Salzburg. Paris of Lodron (1619-1653) Taler. DAV-3497. KM-61. At first glance, this specimen displays evenly-toned cabinet patination; however, upon rotation the surfaces completely transform with iridescent hues of turquoise, copper, and gold that reside within the protected areas and illuminate the boldly-struck design features. An altogether captivating example that delivers exceptional visual allure, as well as a near-Gem technical quality. Scarce in all regards. NGC MS-64.
