Kunker sale 263, lot 771
This specimen was lot 771 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €1,400 (about US$1,809 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BRAUNSCHWEIG-WOLFENBÜTTEL, FÜRSTENTUM Karl I. 1735-1780. Reichstaler 1752, Zellerfeld. Ausbeute der Grube Güte des Herrn. Sehr attraktives Exemplar mit hübscher Patina, vorzüglich. (Germany, principality of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel, Charles I, 1735-80, thaler of 1752, Zellerfeld mint, for the "Goodness of the Lord" mine. Attractive, extremely fine with nice patina.)"
The duke must have been extra grateful for his silver mines in 1752, as he issued this one for the "Goodness of the Lord", Dav-2157 for the "White Swan" mine, Dav-2162 for "Lauthenthal's Luck", Dav-2166 for the "Rainbow" mine and Dav-2168 for the king Carl mine. All are scarce. A similar thaler, honoring the same mine, is known from Hannover (Dav-2100).

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-2164; KM-943, Müseler 10.3/56; Welter 2724.
