Another nice coin!  Congrats.

This is my only coin for Gustavus Adlophus, one that I've owned since the late 1980s. 

This coin was issued at Eurfurt in 1632, during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) before the death of Adolphus at the battle at Lützen, on November 6, 1632.  While the Protestants won that battle, his death threw their cause in disarray.

 Gustauvs Adolphus, Erfurt, "Purimstaler", 1632.

D-4546

29.0 grams.

The reverse legend is: “Purim day of the Evangelicals in 1632, celebrated in Erfurt on 7 September. / Honor and praise be unto God, three times the best and greatest, who had granted Gustavus Adolphus, King of the Swedes, Goths and Wends, victory over the Imperial and the League army near Leipzig on 7 September 1631.”

Künker had problems with photos this time. Your coin will definitely look better in hand.

Here is my ducat minted in Prague from the auction. I like my photo better

Your coin is exquisite!!!!! Photo is much better in showing the details. The Prague Mint struck some really beautifull coinage for the HRE.

Nice coin!  Transylvanian coins, gold or silver are difficult to locate and always attract generally healthy bidding a auction. 

World Wide Coins of California recently had an auction (print only, not Internet) of an impressive group of Transylvanian  thalers, one of the best that I have seen in many years, that hauled in mostly very strong hammer prices.

There was one Transylvanian gold coin in that auction.  All of the photos in the catalog are in black and white.  As far as I know this has always been the case with World Wide auction catalogs.  I have them going back into the 1980s.

Transylvania Gold 10 ducats 1577 World Wide Catalog Fall 2022 auction photo.

Lot 272

Here's the lot's description: 

"GOLD 10 Ducats 1577, Fr-279, Resch-2.  32.01 grams. Christoph Bathori. Crowned shield support by angels/Three line legend.  Mounted and tooled FINE, with scratches. EXTREMELY RARE  ($5,000)"

In addition to the above description, the flan appears to have a bend, most apparent on the reverse. The flan generally is somewhat wavy.

The hammer price was $3,200 which might have been the reserve price.  I'm sure condition issue influenced the high bid. 

Note also that World Wide does not have a buyer's commission.
