Sincona sale 11, lot 748
This specimen was lot 748 in Sincona sale 11 (Zurich, May 2013), where it sold for 650 CHF (about US$805 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"DEUTSCHLAND Baden-Durlach, Grossherzogtum Leopold, 1830-1852. Kronentaler 1832, Karlsruhe. Auf den Besuch der Münzstätte vom 29. Februar. Kl. Kr. Vorzüglich. (Grandy Duchy of Baden, Leopold, 1830-52. Crown thaler of 1832, Karlsruhe mint, on the visit of the ducal family to the mint. Light hairlines, extremely fine.)"
This commemorative is rare. The SCWC reports the weight as 18.14 g but the weight reported for the kronen thaler (29.48 g for Dav-519) matches the specimen offered here, so we will use that.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 29.48 g, .900 fine silver, this specimen 29.33 g.

Catalog reference: Kahnt 24. Thun 20, KM 200, Davenport-520.
