Kunker sale 263, lot 1475
This specimen was lot 1475 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabruck, June 2015), where it sold for €4,600 (about US$5,942 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Rudolf II. 1576-1612. Reichstaler 1592, Prag. Münzmeister Lazar Erker. RR Min. Zainende, sehr schön. (Holy Roman Empire, Rudolf II, 1576-1612, thaler of 1592, Prague mint, mintmaster Lazarus Erker. Rare, minimal flaws, very fine.)"
Davenport lists this type for 1587-1600. Davenport lists over 130 different thalers for Austria in the sixteenth century. Prague, of course, was in Bohemia but was run by the Hapsburgs as an ordinary branch mint.
