Austria 1610-Hall thaler Dav-3007
This specimen was lot 27390 in Heritage sale 3031 (Dallas, January 2014), where it did not sell. The catalog description noted, "Rudolf II Taler 1610, MS62 NGC. Hall mint issue. Silvery toning with strong underlying luster. A great looking early Taler. Rudolf's Talers in mint state are seldom encountered." This period in Austrian coinage presents a bewildering array of thalers. For the Hall mint in 1610, we see Dav-3007, -3007A, -3007B, -3007C, -3007D and -3008; other mints contributed Dav-3037 (Vienna), -3039 (Vienna), -3310 (Graz) and -3314 (Klagenfurt).
Recorded mintage: unknown but common.
