Rostock, located on an estuary by the Baltic Sea, was an important Hanseatic city and port of the period. Although technically under rule of Mecklenburg, the city was effectively independent and began issuing coins as early as 1325. Many coins were produced, but most were used in trade, so almost none have been preserved. To find one of these in this superb quality is most unusual.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.
