This specimen was lot 199 in Sincona sale 46 (Zurich, May 2018), where it sold for 1,600 CHF (about US$1,920 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, Herzogtum, Ernst August, 1837-1851. 10 Taler 1848 B, Hannover. Sehr schön-vorzüglich. (kingdom of Hannover, Ernest Augustus, 1837-51, 10 thalers of 1848, Hannover mint. Very fine-extremely fine.)"
Various types of ten thaler pieces were struck most years between 1813 and 1856; the type shown here was issued 1846-48 and is very scarce, tho the 1848 is the most common of the three dates. The kingdom of Hannover was the old duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg prior to the Napoleonic invasions. It was separated from the British crown in 1837 and absorbed by Prussia in 1866.
