Sincona sale 23, lot 2127
This specimen was lot 2127 in Sincona sale 23 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 400 CHF (about US$503 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Bremen, Stadt, Taler 1743. Titel Karl VII. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Germany, city of Bremen, thaler of 1743, struck in the name of Charles VII, very fine to extremely fine.)"
Other thalers exist for Bremen from the eighteenth century but are very rare; this one is only scarce. It was struck for the pretender Charles VII, the last serious challenger to the Hapsburg claim to be Holy Roman Emperor. It is accompanied by a double thaler (Dav-2050).
