Aureo sale 261, lot 276
This specimen was lot 276 in Aureo sale 261 (Barcelona, July 2014), where it sold for €440 (about US$706 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1713. Carlos III, Pretendiente. Graz. 1 taler. Bella. EBC (Charles III, pretender, thaler of 1713, Graz mint. Handsome, extremely fine.)"
This type was struck 1713 and 1718 and is fairly common. Similar types were issued by Hall, Vienna, Breslau and St. Veit. Charles was the younger brother of Joseph I and was not expected to inherit the imperial throne. As such, he was put forward as the rival candidate of Philip V for the Spanish crown. His brother's unexpected death in 1711 made him the Holy Roman Emperor and his anti-French allies quickly lost interest in placing him on the Spanish throne.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-1039; KM-1551 (formerly KM 504).
