Sincona sale 22, lot 1130
This specimen was lot 1130 in Sincona sale 22 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 425 CHF (about US$534 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Wolfenbüttel, Herzogtum, Anton Ulrich 1704-1714 Taler 1712. Zellerfeld. Vorzüglich. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel, Anton Ulrich, 1704-14, thaler of 1712, Zellerfeld mint, extremely fine)"
This type of 1712 is fairly common but the "wild man" design is always popular. The curious use of "9's" in the obverse legend "ANTON9 ULRICH9 DUX BR" appear to be contractions, i.e., "ANTON' ULRICH' DUX BR."

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 29.28 g.

Catalog reference: Dav-2117; KM-686.2, Welter 2303.
