Sincona sale 1, lot 1566
This specimen was lot 1566 in SINCONA sale 1 (Zurich, June 2011), where it sold for 400 CHF ($557 including buyer's fee). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Olmütz, Bistum Karl III. von Lothringen, 1695-1710. Taler 1704. Kremsier. Brustbild in Amtstracht nach rechts. Rv. Gekröntes Wappen auf Ordensstern. Rv. bearb. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Germany, Bishopric of Olmutz, Charles II of Lorraine, 1695-1710, thaler of 1704, Kremsier mint. Bust in clerical robe facing right; reverse: crowned arms on Maltese cross. Very fine to extremely fine.)"

This one-year type is among the scarcer issues from this ecclesiastical state in Moravia, then part of Austria, now the Czech Republic. The catalog[1] misattributed this specimen as 1704, not 1703. Later thalers from the 1720's are listed quite inexpensively.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver; this specimen 28,11 g.

Catalog reference: Lichn.-Mayer 342. Suchomel/Videman 574. Dav. 1207, KM 352 (formerly KM 110).
