Sincona sale 4, lot 5293
This specimen was lot 5293 in Sincona sale 4 (Zurich, October 2011), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"ÖSTERREICH Franz II. (I.), 1792-1835 Kronentaler 1795, Günzburg. Belorbeertes Brustbild nach rechts. Kreuz aus Knotenstäben, in den Winkeln Kronen und das Kleinod des Ordens vom Goldenen Vlies. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Austria, Francis II, 1792-1835, crown thaler of 1795, Gunzburg mint. Obverse: laureate bust to right; reverse: Burgundy cross, crowns in corners and order of the Golden Fleece. Very fine to extremely fine.)"
This type is listed for 1792-97 in the SCWC under the Austrian Netherlands, which we regard as an error, as the type was struck throughout the Austrian empire. Gunzburg was in the Austrian Burgau, now part of Bavaria.

Recorded mintage: unknown but common.

Specification: 29.44 g, .873 fine silver, .826 troy oz ASW; this specimen is 29,40 g.
