Comments

The medalist Max Barduleck minted around 1870 in only 70 copies this interesting ducat as a commemoration of archery on the occasion of the 50th birthday of King Frederick August II on August 2, 1847. The ducat was awarded at the annual archeries as a premium for the first wooden chip splintered by hitting the arrow.
