This specimen was lot 809 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €1,900 (about US$2,561 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"FREIBURG, STADT, Guldentaler (60 Kreuzer) 1567, mit Titel Ferdinands I. R Sehr schön. Exemplar der Auktion Gerhard Hirsch XXI, München 1959, Nr. 625. (Germany, city of Freiburg, gulden thaler of sixty kreuzer of 1567, struck in the name of Ferdinand I. Scarce, very fine.)"
Freiburg, north of Basel and east of the Rhine, was the chief town of the Austrian province of Breisgau. In 1803, Napoleon handed it over to his ally, the grand duke of Baden, whose possession it remained until the collapse of the Wilhelmine empire in 1918. This issue of 1563-73, like most from this locality, is rare.
