The first specimen was lot 2312 in Sincona sale 33 (Zurich, October 2016), where it sold for 144 CHF (about US$171 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Nurnberg, City, Halbtaler 1760. Fast vorzüglich. (Germany, city of Nuremberg, half thaler of 1760. About extremely fine.)"
The second specimen was lot 3249 in Sincona sale 51 (Zurich, October 2018), where it sold for 200 CHF (about US$241 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[2] noted,
"1/2 Konventionstaler 1760. Gutes vorzüglich. (Germany, city of Nurnberg, half convention thaler of 1760. Good extremely fine.)"
The relative rarity of German minors such as this half thaler is much less well documented than that of the thalers and ducats. Major rarities sell cheaply for lack of interest. Nuremberg was mediatized by Napoleon in 1806 and handed over to Bavaria.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 14.03 g, .833 fine silver, the first specimen 13.99 g, the second specimen 14.00 g.
