  • Details

    102611  |  CZECHOSLOVAKIA. "Temptation" uniface bronze Plaque. Issued ca. 1917 (59mm x 56mm, 87.59 g). By J. Čejka at the Kremnica mint.


    Nude female standing facing, head turned over her left shoulder and attempting to cover herself with a drapery; behind to right, portly man reclining on bed, resting hand upon bag of coins, while other bags of coins spill out, along with pieces of jewelry // Plain. Edge: Plain.


    Choice Mint State. Olive-bronze surface, with great brilliance. An interesting and rather provocative issue.


    Quite unusual and thought-provoking, this issue seems to embody the aspect of temptation, with the nude female deliberating what can only be interpreted as a would-be prostitution scene. She is contemplating the act, with a rather rotund man tempting her with rewards in the form of many coins and even jewelry should she join him in bed in order to earn her compensation.
