"HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE - AUSTRIA | Olmütz, Bistum, Carl III. von Lothringen, 1695-1711. Taler 1709, Kremsier. Sehr schön. Kleiner Schrötlingsfehler. (bishopric of Olmutz, Charles III of Lorraine, 1695-1711, thaler of 1709, Kremsier mint. Very fine, Minor flan flaw.)"This type was struck 1709-10. We don't know why this specimen realized eleven times its catalog value. The bishopric of Olmutz was then in Moravia and now in the Czech Republic. As Moravia was part of the Empire, we have included this issue with the German thalers.
