At our E-Auction 11 – 10 zlotys klippe Józef Piłsudski Orzeł Strzelecki with PF63 + note
We do not know about the rest of Poland, but the weather in Rzeszów is fantastic, which, combined with Friday, introduces us to a slightly weekend atmosphere In order to get out of this blissful relaxation and boost the atmosphere for the last hours in the company, we present a position that will give us an injection of numismatic adrenaline at the same time.
At the end of the short introduction, we are pleased to present a real rarity that will be the pride of the IIRP department at our September E-Auction – a 10 zlotys klippe Józef Piłsudski Orzeł Strzelecki appreciated with an extremely high PF63 + score. An extremely interesting coin, dating back to 1934, being the progenitor of the Marshal’s bust for later issues reproducing this image on circulation coins, the portrait was the responsibility of the outstanding sculptor Stanisław Kazimierz Ostrowski. The klippe was to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the departure of the First Cadre Company with a depiction on the obverse of a characteristic shooting eagle without a crown with a smaller shield inscribed with an “S” referring to the Riflemen’s Associations, which the commander-in-chief commissioned in 1913 to develop this pattern of an eagle for a cap.
A perfect specimen that makes a deadly impression in real life, with a beautiful patina of a shade dependent on the light, shimmering from gray to delicate pink.
