Künker sale 293, lot 1637
This specimen was lot 1637 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €90 (about US$121 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"RÖMISCH-DEUTSCHES REICH, Franz I. 1745-1765. 17 Kreuzer 1761, HA, Hall. Vorzüglich. (Holy Roman Empire, Francis I, 1745-65, seventeen kreuzer of 1761, Hall mint. Extremely fine.)"
We don't know what prompted the issue of this denomination, which competed with contemporary ten, fifteen and twenty kreuzer, but various types were issued 1751-65 from Vienna, Prague, Nagybanya, Kremnitz, Karlsburg, Hall (shown here) and Graz. Seventeen kreuzer with the bust of Maria Theresia also exist from Vienna (KM 1782), Graz and Hall.

Specification: 6.12 g, .542 fine silver, .106 troy oz ASW.
