Künker sale 293, lot 131
This specimen was lot 131 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €290 (about US$391 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BADEN, BADEN-DURLACH, MARKGRAFSCHAFT, Karl Leopold Friedrich, 1830-1852. Vereinsdoppeltaler 1844. Carl-Friedrich-Denkmal. Feine Tönung, winz. Kratzer, vorzüglich-Stempelglanz (grand duchy of Baden, Charles Leopold Frederick, 1830-52, double union thaler of 1844, for the statue of his father. Fine toning, minimal scratches, extremely fine to uncirculated.)"
Despite the small mintage, this is the most available double thaler of Baden, suggesting that it was saved. The grand duchy issued coins until 1918.

Recorded mintage: 4,323.

Specification: 37.12 g, .900 fine silver, 1.074 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: AKS 110; Kahnt 30; Thun 25, Dav-525, KM 217.1.
