Sincona sale 39, lot 3975
This specimen was lot 3975 in Sincona sale 39 (Zurich, May 2017), where it sold for 325 CHF (about US$390 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE - AUSTRIA, Joseph I. 1705-1711 Vierteltaler o. J. Hall. Vorzüglich-FDC. Kleine Kratzer. Herrliche Patina. (Holy Roman Empire, Joseph I, 1705-11, undated quarter thaler, Hall mint. Extremely fine-uncirculated. Small scratches. Most attractive patina.)"
This undated and rather scarce quarter thaler seems to be the only issue of this denomination during Joseph's brief reign except for a rare 1707 quarter thaler from the St. Veit mint.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 7.20 g, .875 fine silver; this specimen is 7.19 g.
