This specimen was lot 2083 in Sincona sale 23 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 250 CHF (about US$314 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Augsburg, Stadt, Taler 1694. Titel Leopold I. Sehr schön. (Germany, city of Augsburg, thaler of 1694, struck in the name of Leopold I, very fine.)"
This type was struck 1694 only in the name of Leopold I (d. 1705) and is a somewhat scarce issue for this locale. Issues from before and during the Thirty Years War appear much more often. The pine cone is the symbol of the city.
