This specimen was lot 24806 in Heritage sale 3030 (New York, January 2014), where it sold for $3,407.50. The catalog description noted, "Danzig. Vladislaus IV Taler 1640-GR, XF40 NGC, nicely toned with bold details, an attractive example of this early Taler. The G-R mintmaster initials refer to Gerard Rogge."
