Austria (1540-56) thaler Dav-8026
"Taler o. J. Hall. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Austria, thaler without date, Hall mint, very fine to extremely fine.)"Altho this type could have been minted any time during Ferdinand's long reign (1521-64), we have narrowed it down to 1540-56 as thalers issued after that date always show the emperor bearded.
Recorded mintage: unknown but fairly common.
Specification: silver, this specimen 28.68 g.
