Kunker sale 263, lot 604
This specimen was lot 604 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €420 (about US$543 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Bavaria, SEIT 1623 KURFÜRSTENTUM, Maximilian II. Emanuel, 1679-1726. Reichstaler 1695, München. Seltener Jahrgang. Attraktives, fast vorzügliches Exemplar. (Germany, electorate of Bavaria, Maximilian II, 1679-1726, thaler of 1695, Munich mint. Rare date, attractive, choice extremely fine.)"
This one year type is only one in a long succession of "Madonna" thalers issued by Bavaria in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Altho not cheap in this grade, this issue is not rare by the standards of German states coinage.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-6101; Hahn 199, KM 365.2.
