Kunker sale 263, lot 761
This specimen was lot 761 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €1,700 (about US$2,196 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BRAUNSCHWEIG-WOLFENBÜTTEL, FÜRSTENTUM Anton Ulrich, 1704-1714. Reichstaler 1713, Zellerfeld. Prachtexemplar. Herrliche Patina, vorzüglich-Stempelglanz. (principality of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel, Anton Ulrich, 1704-14, thaler of 1713, Zellerfeld mint. Proof example, great patina, extremely fine to uncirculated.)"
This type of 1713-14 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.

Catalog reference: Dav-2118; KM-686.3, Welter 2303.
