Unique Netherlands Gilt Cardboard Pattern

slab

This is a 10 Gulden 1875 Netherlands gilt cardboard pattern. It is the only one in existence! It is certified by PCGS as SP63 Gilt Cardboard Pattern!

Most cardboard trials are struck on just one side, but this one is made like an actual coin, double-sided with a raised edge and then gilded making it appear like a gold 10 Gulden 1875. It is one of the rarest patterns from the Netherlands.

It is amazing that this cardboard pattern has survived over a century! It is considered unique.
