This specimen was lot 1683 in Sincona sale 63 (Zurich, June 2020), where it sold for 1,700 CHF (about US$2,130 including buyer's fees).

Very fine, Minor flan flaw.)"</blockquote> 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 [[Austria|Empire]], we have included this issue with the German thalers.
