(King Christian V of Denmark- numismatics- medals in silver & gold- coinage- mints- military victory commemorative medallic art)
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet
Charming early 18th century copper engraved print, with pleasing full hand color. Very few examples are encountered with such nice detailed hand color.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of numismatic image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.
Mostly clean & well preserved example, trivial blank margin corner staining & edge toning which visually testifies to the age and patina. If this were an antique coin, it would have a nice surface.
Sheet measures c. 7" W x 8" H.
Printed area measures c. 5" W x 6 1/2" H.
