This specimen was lot 844 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €1,200 (about US$1,550 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Emden, STADT Reichstaler 1674, mit Titel Leopolds I. RR Hübsche Patina, winz. Prägeschwäche, sehr schön. (Germany, city of Emden, thaler of 1674, in the name of Leopold I. Rare, nice toning, cleaned, very fine.)"
In the seventeenth century, Emden was an insignificant fishing village in Ostfriesland on the border between Germany and the Netherlands (part of the Empire until 1648). It rose in importance during the industrialization of the late nineteenth century and received the attention of several devastating bombing raids during World War Two. This scarce type does not have a photo in the SCWC.
