This specimen was lot 105 in Künker sale 263 (Osnabruck, June 2015), where it sold for €800 (about US$1,033 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Halberstadt, BISTUM Domkapitel. Reichstaler 1628. Mit einfacher Raute am Ende der Vorderseitenumschrift. R Feine Patina, sehr schön +. (bishopric of Halberstadt, thaler of 1628-CZ, with diamond at the end of the obverse legend. Scarce, fine patina, choice very fine.)"
The bishop, Christian, was from Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel but never ruled as duke there. This scarce type is slightly less rare than other issues of the 1620's.
