Hirsch 35, and pl. Iv,35. Horsky 2062. Julius 181. Rare, most attractive and very well preserved . A few very minor marks, otherwise, good extremely fine.


This is a particularly fine and beautifully struck example of a medal struck to commemorate the dispersal of the Turkish army before Vienna in 1683. The engraver, A. Meybusch, was of Dutch origin, though born in Copenhagen, who primarily worked in Denmark and who died in 170. This medal was almost immediately copied by C. Waschmann, but his version is greatly inferior to this one.
