This specimen was lot 1328 in Sincona sale 47 (Zurich, May 2018), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,

(bishopric of Eichstatt, John Eucharius of Castell, 1685-97, thaler of 1694, Nurnberg mint. Dies by G. F. Nurnberger, with edge lettering. Rare, Good very fine, Minor flan crack.)"
