GENERALOBERST v. WOYRSCH, uniformed bust facing slightly left / WIR BRAUCHEN SCHWER ERRUNGNEN SIEG • ER ERST LÄUTERT EIN VOLK (when a difficult victory is needed, it is he who purifies a people), nude soldier standing facing, head left, holding sword and with eagle resting upon knee; long cross behind, two slain dragons at his feet.

Zetzmann 2109. Mint State Details. Highly lustrous and brilliant, with some light frosting; some burnished golden toning around the devices; some hairlines are noted in the fields; also noted are a few very light abrasions on the nude soldier's thigh, knee, and abdomen. These are seemingly very old, as the blending is fairly seamless.
