This specimen was lot 4084 in Sincona sale 34 (Zurich, October 2016), where it sold for 2,000 CHF (about US$2,374 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE - AUSTRIA. Rudolf II. 1576-1612 Taler 1610. Prag Münzmeister Benedikt Huebmer. Sehr selten. Sehr schön, Dunkle Tönung. (Holy Roman Empire, Rudolf II, 1576-1612, thaler of 1610, Prague mint, mintmaster Benedikt Huebmer. Very rare, Very fine, dark toning.)"
This type was struck 1603-11 and is scarce. The SCWC has filed this type under Bohemia but we have followed tradition and placed this under Austria. A klippe version of this thaler also exists but is rare.

Recorded mintage: unknown.
