This specimen was lot 198 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €260 (about US$351 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Ludwig I. 1825-1848. Konv.-Taler 1835. Denkmal des Königs Maximilian Joseph. Variante mit verkürztem Zepter. Vorzüglich. (kingdom of Bavaria, Louis I, 1825-48, convention thaler of 1835, for the statue of king Maximilian Joseph. Extremely fine.)"
This rather scarce commemorative was issued for the unveiling of a statue of the king's father, Maximilian Joseph. It comes in two varieties on the reverse, with a short scepter or long scepter. The 1830's saw a gush of commemoratives--seven in 1835 alone--in Bavaria on significant and insignificant topics.
