Sincona sale 22, lot 1177
This specimen was lot 1177 in Sincona sale 22 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 275 CHF (about US$346 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, Herzogtum, Ernst August, 1679-1698 Taler 1680. Clausthal. Sehr schön. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, Ernest Augustus (1679-98), thaler of 1680, Clausthal mint, very fine.)"
The Duchy of Brunswick was divided and subdivided in the seventeenth century but was eventually reassembled as the Kingdom of Hannover before being absorbed into Prussia in 1866. This type is listed for 1680 only along with Dav-6591, -6602 and -6604. The SCWC states this type is scarce, verging on rare. It seems to be the fourth "leaping stallion" thaler from this locale.

Reported Mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 27.62 g.

Catalog reference: KM 267.1, Welter 1957; Dav-6603.
