Kunker sale 263, lot 1071
This specimen was lot 1071 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €600 (about US$775 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"NÜRNBERG, STADT Reichstaler 1696, auf die Vorverhandlungen zum Frieden von Rijswijk. Feine Patina, kl. Schrötlingsfehler am Rand, min. Probierspur, sehr schön. (Germany, city of Nuremberg, thaler of 1696, on the Treaty of Rijswijk. Toned, edge cracks, very fine.)"
The Treaty of Ryswyck ended one of the interminable wars between Louis XIV of France and Austria. This thaler must have been saved as it is the most available thaler of the second half of the seventeenth century.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-5668; Kellner 265, KM 228.
