Sincona sale 22, lot 1214
This specimen was lot 1214 in Sincona sale 22 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 425 CHF (about US$534 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, Herzogtum, Georg Ludwig (Georg I.), 1698-1727 Taler 1723. Clausthal. Fast vorzüglich-sehr schön. (Germany, duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, George Louis, 1698-1727, thaler of 1723, Clausthal mint, extremely fine to very fine.)"
This type was issued 1718-27. "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 (note the British arms on the obverse). This is the period when the duchy ceased to be known as Brunswick-Luneburg and called Hannover instead.
