Künker sale 293, lot 678
This specimen was lot 678 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €260 (about US$351 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BRAUNSCHWEIG-LÜNEBURG, HERZOGTUM Georg I. Ludwig, als Georg I. König von Großbritannien, 1714-1727. Reichstaler 1720, Zellerfeld. Schrötlingsfehler, sehr schön +. (Germany, electorate of Brunswick-Luneburg, George Louis as George I, king of Great Britain, 1714-27, thaler of 1720, Zellerfeld mint. Edge defects, very fine or better.)"
In addition to various "St. Andrew", "leaping stallion" and "bust" thalers, George I also issued "wild man" thalers with two different obverses, both common. On this one, the combined arms of England, France, Ireland and Hannover are shown within the Order of the Garter; on Dav-2077, the four shields are arrayed in a cross with a starburst in the center.

Reported Mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Welter 2236; Dav-2076, KM 114.
