This specimen was lot 1477 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabruck, June 2015), where it sold for €1,300 (about US$1,679 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Rudolf II. 1576-1612. Reichstaler 1605, Kuttenberg. Münzmeister David Enderle. Feine Patina, sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Holy Roman Empire, Rudolf II, 1576-1612, thaler of 1605, Kuttenberg mint, mintmaster David Enderle. Toned, very fine to extremely fine.)"
The SCWC lists this type for 1602-12 under Bohemia. Kuttenberg, now Kutná Hora, was indeed in Bohemia, but was run by the Hapsburgs as an ordinary branch mint. The town was devastated during the Thirty Years War and the mines fell into ruin.

Recorded mintage: unknown but common.
