Hannover 1701-HB thaler Dav-2061
"Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, Herzogtum, Georg Ludwig (Georg I.), 1698-1727 Taler 1701. Clausthal. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, George Louis, 1698-1727, thaler of 1701, Clausthal mint, very fine to extremely fine.)"This type was issued 1700-05 (confusingly, the 1700 issue is catalogued as Dav-6655). St. Andrew thalers were issued from this locality as late as 1760. George Ludwig was promoted to king of England on the death of his cousin Anne Stuart in 1714. This is the period when the duchy ceased to be known as Brunswick-Luneburg and called Hannover instead.
