Kunker sale 263, lot 792
This specimen was lot 792 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €2,800 (about US$3,617 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BRAUNSCHWEIG-CALENBERG-HANNOVER, Johann Friedrich, 1665-1679. Reichstaler 1678, Clausthal. RR Sehr schön. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick-Calenberg-Hannover, John Frederick, 1665-79, thaler of 1678, Clausthal mint, rare, very fine.)"
While the "leaping stallion" thaler was popular and struck in many variations, this particular issue is rare, being unpriced in the SCWC.
