  Basel 1499 Dickguldiner +MONETA:BASILIENSIS:1499 AVE:MARIA:-GRACIA:P'
Sold at Leu 88 for a most impressive $31,580! This is a coin of almost guldiner weight (27.9g) struck on the flan of a dicken 29mm in size. This results in a very thick coin. The German term for this type of coin is dickabschlag, in English and French it is known as a piefort (piedfort) although strictly speaking a piefort is double thickness.
