Sincona sale 9, lot 4850
This specimen was lot 4850 in Sincona sale 9 (Zurich, October 2012), where it sold for 170 CHF (about US$215 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ÖSTERREICH Erzherzog Leopold V. 1619-1632. Taler 1624, Hall. Gutes sehr schön. (Austria, archduke Leopold V, 1619-32, thaler of 1624, Hall mint, good very fine.)"
This type was struck 1620-25 in numerous varieties (Dav-3328, -3329, -3329V, -3330, -3330V). In addition, other Austrian thalers for 1624 include Dav-3104, -3078, -3106, -3087, -3123, -3144, -3146, -3146A, -3104A, -3330A, -3092, -3080, -3081, -3085, -3086, -3083, -3084 and -3087A. Quite a challenge for those used to collecting neat rows of Lincoln cents.

Recorded mintage: unknown but fairly common.

Specification: silver, this specimen 29,13 g.
