Austria 1614-CO thaler Dav-3320
This specimen was lot 30229 in Heritage sale 3081 (New York, January 2020), where it sold for $3,360. The catalog description noted, "Austria, Maximilian III Taler 1614-Co MS65 PCGS, Hall mint. Exceptionally preserved for the type, with the devices crafted to admirable relief, the fields lustrous and enhanced by a fine silver patina that transitions to touches of pale gold at the edges. An impressive selection which would be difficult to meaningfully improve upon." This is a rather scarce one year type very similar to Dav-3319.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
