A scarce date that is extremely condition sensitive and highly sought after by collectors. Most notably in this remarkable state of preservation. Patina appears as a conglomerate of smokey tones that are mixed in a base light faded gray. The globes, pillars, and water are the only places that display minor cabinet friction or abrasions that can be seen with the naked eye. Reverse shows only scant evidence of wear as all other details are extremely sharp considering how much this issue had a chance to circulate throughout the centuries. A rare offering that was once owned by Richard Stuart.
