From the Gasvoda Collection. Ex Nomos FPL (Winter-Spring 2013), no. 2; Numismatica Genevensis SA VI (30 November 2010), lot 19.

From the consignor: This is an awesome example for the type. The obverse and reverse detail indicates that this was from an early strike for each of the dies. The surfaces are pristine, and the metal is perfectly sound. Probably one of the top survivors for this series.
